To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what research has been undertaken by his Department into effective methods of retraining accident victims.

The Department has undertaken no national research specifically relating to retraining accident victims.People with disabilities, including those whose disabilities arise from accidents, have priority under a wide range of employment and training programmes including training for work and, where eligible, learning for work and community action.People with disabilities retain their priority status throughout their period of unemployment, or until they have entered each one of our main programmes.
