Scope responds to comments made by welfare minister Lord Freud that some disabled people are "not worth" being paid the minimum wage.
A spokesperson for the disability charity Scope said:
"The suggestion that disabled people should be prepared to be paid less than minimum wage is unacceptable."
"It was reassuring to hear Prime Minister David Cameron make it clear today that this is not the position of the Government."
"Disabled people are pushing hard to find jobs and get on in the workplace. 9 in 10 disabled people work or have worked. Yet only half of disabled people have a job right now."
"Disabled people face huge barriers in finding and staying in work which need to be addressed."
"We need to look into how we can make work places more flexible, welcoming environments where disabled people flourish rather than struggle.
"We need to make sure more disabled people get access to expert, tailored support to find work."
"The Government’s Disability Confident campaign is also a recognition of how important the attitudes of employers are."
