§ Mr. Haselhurst
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make a statement on the employment of people with disabilities in the civil service.744W
The annual report on progress in the employment of people with disabilities in the civil service is presented in the magazineIndependent published today.
The report shows that during 1992, 8,336–1.5 per cent—registered disabled people were employed in civil service departments and agencies, an increase of 312 people over 1991. In addition to this, the civil service employs many more people with disabilities who choose not to register as disabled.
I am arranging for copies of Independent to be placed in the Library of the House.
