To ask the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will withdraw his consultative document on "Employment and Training for People with Disabilities" pending the completion of consultations on the future of the services currently provided by the employee rehabilitation centre, Western avenue, Cardiff.

No. The consultative document identifies a wide range of action that the Government intends to take and proposals on which we have asked for comments. All of the issues are of considerable importance to the future provision of employment and training for people with disabilities and the consultation process on the document is well under way. As I mentioned in my reply to the hon. Member on 18 July, consultations about the future provision and location of services specifically provided by the employment rehabilitation centre in Cardiff have not yet commenced.
