Out Of Sight - Out Of Work Campaign

EDM number 231 in 1996-97, proposed by Emma Nicholson on 21/11/1996.

That this House deplores the fact that an estimated 75 per cent. of blind and partially sighted people of working age are unemployed; believes that there should be a level playing field in the job market for visually impaired people; and welcomes the setting up of the Out of Sight-Out of Work campaign, which aims to find secure employment for blind and partially sighted people in order that they can take their rightful place in the world of work.

This motion has been signed by a total of 53 MPs.
