asked the Secretary of State for Employment at what date the Manpower Services Commission first began to prepare for the "Fit for Work" campaign.

I am advised by the Manpower Services Commission that preliminary planning for its "Fit for Work" campaign on behalf of disabled people began early in 1978. The decision to mount the campaign was taken by the commission in September of that year, whereupon detailed preparation commenced, culminating in its launch on 17 September 1979 by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment.
