HC Deb 03 April 1981 vol 2 cc172-3W
Mr. Iain Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what was the expenditure in 1978, 1979 and 1980 by jobcentres on advertising and promotion.

Mr. Peter Morrison

The information is available only by financial years. Total expenditure on advertising and promoting the services to employers and jobseekers of the 1,000 plus jobcentres and employment offices in each of the financial years 1978–79, 1979–80, 1980–81 was as follows:

1978–1979 941,000
1979–1980 566,000
1980–1981 746,000

The totals include an estimate for expenditure on printed material of a promotional rather than advisory nature. The figures represent actual expenditure and are not adjusted for inflation.
