Motion text

That this House welcomes the Disability Rights Commission's campaign to keep disabled people in work, including those with long-term health conditions like cancer, HIV/AIDS, depression, diabetes and heart disease; notes that 3.4 million disabled people are already in work, with over half a million of them contributing to the UK's smallest businesses, and that a further million disabled people say that they want to work; believes the Department for Work and Pensions' Five Year Strategy for welfare reform represents a valuable opportunity to support more disabled people into employment; and urges the Government to publicise the Access to Work scheme to small employers, as the most recent research reveals that only 18 per cent. of small employers know about it.
