asked the Minister of Labour what steps have been taken in the last few years to find suitable work for disabled persons in Newcastle-under-Lyme; and what action his Department is now taking to expand opportunities for employment for the disabled.

My disablement resettlement officers have taken every opportunity of finding suitable employment for disabled persons. In fact, the number of unemployed disabled people has fallen from 148 in October, 1960, to 129 in October this year.
