47. Mr. White
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what progress has been made with the provision of self-service job centres; and what results have been achieved by those already in operation.
Self-service facilities are now available at 38 employment offices throughout the country and further schemes are under preparation. The facilities have resulted in increased use of the 355W offices by both employers and those seeking employment. As indicated in "People and Jobs" they will in the future be provided in all new offices as a matter of course.
