asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how his Department has responded to the Manpower Services Commission "Fit for Work" campaign; and what policy is followed regarding the filling of vacancies where suitably qualified unemployed disabled persons apply.

The Department follows the Civil Service policy on the employment of disabled people. Its aims are closely allied to those of the "Fit for Work" campaign, as the policy statement which I am sending the hon. Member makes clear. Copies of the policy statement are available in the Library.
