(a) Is he aware —

(ii) that the lower body of a substantial number of these individuals is paraplegic as a result of the damages caused to their vertebral column; and
(iii) that the majority out of these displaced persons have by now been resettled and another group is yet to be resettled?
(b) Will he inform this House—
(i) whether arrangements will be made to provide houses and toilets which have been appropriately constructed addressing disability access, when constructing houses and toilets for the resettled persons in northern and eastern provinces by the government and non governmental organizations; and
(ii) if so, at which percentage that will be?
(c) If not, why?
