HC Deb 30 July 1984 vol 65 c128W
Mr. Hayes

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what was the total number of people benefiting from special employment and training measures at the latest available date in the constituency of Harlow or in the geographical area which corresponds most closely with that constituency; and what is the average cost per person supported under each measure.

Mr. Peter Morrison

Some 3,500, although, because of the various bases on which local information is collated, an unknown proportion will be in areas outside my hon. Friend's constituency. The costs set out are national averages based on the latest information and estimates and where appropriate include assumptions about periods of participation on schemes and the number of supervisors employed. They do not take into account savings in the payments of benefits or flow-backs to the Exchequer from tax and national insurance. The cost in any particular scheme may vary from the national average.
