asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what organisations her Department has consulted regarding proposals for some form of wages supplement for disabled people in employment following the announcement in paragraph 51 of the House of Commons Paper whole-time; how many were employed part-time; and how many posts were vacant.
Following is the information:"Social Security Provision for Chronically Sick and Disabled People".
I shall be considering with ministerial colleagues how best to follow up what was said in paragraph 51 of the House of Commons Paper. As my hon. Friend will appreciate, however, my prime task in the near future will be to ensure that the new non-contributory invalidity pension, the invalid care allowance and the mobility allowance are successfully launched.
