§ Mr. Geoffrey Robinson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment for how long the registration details of a person seeking work are retained at a jobcentre.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
A jobcentre will normally hold a job seeker's registration details for three months, but will extend this period if the job seeker requests it or the jobcentre decides it is likely to be helpful to the job seeker. Special arrangements apply to the registration of young people, disabled people and ex-regular members of Her Majesty's forces.
