To ask the Scottish Government what the current disability employment gap is and when it will publish the timetable of its plan to reduce this by half.
Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 23 June 2017
Our commitment to halve the disability employment gap is long term and challenging. We recognise we cannot achieve this alone. Change is required across all levels of Scottish society to enable more disabled people to enter and sustain employment.
In the coming months we will engage with partners across Scotland and we will work closely with them to develop a plan which we intend to publish in due course.
