asked the Secretary of State for Employment what discussions he has had regarding the practical effects on registered disabled persons of the operation of the travel-to-work scheme.

I have had discussions on this matter with a number of interested parties. In addition, the National Advisory Council on Employment of Disabled People, which advises the Secretary of State and which includes members representing disabled people's groups, has also discussed it. I am informed by the Chairman of the Manpower Services Commission that officials of the Employment Service Agency, which operates the scheme, have also had discussions on the subject with a number of organisations.
