asked the Minister of Labour if he will indicate where each Remploy factory is situate in South Wales; how many are in production and standing idle, respectively; how many of these were constructed directly for the corporation and those allocated to them; and how many persons are at present employed.

Ten Remploy factories have now been completed in South Wales; of these five were built for the Disabled Persons Employment Corporation at Blackwood, Merthyr, Pentre, Tonyrefail and Ystradgynlais; the other five have been allocated to them at Aberbeeg, Bridgend, Porth, Swansea and Treforest. All these factories are in production except those at Aberbeeg and Pentre which will open very shortly. On 26th April, 606 disabled persons (including 57 home workers) were employed.
