To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many people with disability are on employment training placements with employers; and what percentage this is of placements for people with disabilities.
[holding answer 11 June 1990]: The information requested is not collected by the Training Agency. However, I can say that 2,822 (3·5 per cent. of the total) disabled people joined employment training in Scotland in the period end September 1988 to March 1990 and that overall within that period 22 per cent. of all employment training placements have been with employers.
