Murad Qureshi AM Condemns Callous “Remploy” Decision

The

Acton factory provides high quality services to the electronics’ market and offers employees a unique working environment in which they can fulfil their potential. It is one of 36 plants in the UK set to close as a direct result of the government’s decision to substantially reduce funding to Remploy and comes at a time of economic hardship and high unemployment.

Murad

said in Ealing. The type of working environment offered by Remploy is particularly suited to some people who can do very productive work in a supported environment. Whilst I am supportive of improving access to work for all, the reality of the current economic climate is that there will be little prospect for those who lose their jobs finding new employment if the closure goes ahead."
