To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how many people with epilepsy are employed by his Department; and if he will make a statement. (139108)

Figures for the number of staff with epilepsy employed by DFID are not available, as we do not collect detailed information on the nature of disabilities declared by staff. DFID currently has 57 UK-based staff who have declared disabilities. DFID actively encourages staff to declare any disability in line with Cabinet Office guidelines and categories.
