asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether the names and addresses of those who are registered as unemployed at unemployment benefit offices are available to managers of local jobcentres.
§ Mr. Alan Clark
Since October 1982 and the introduction of a Rayner recommendation that registration for employment at a jobcentre for adults be voluntary, the names and addresses of those signing at unemployment benefit offices have not been automatically passed to jobcentres. This information has, however, been made available on request.
Unemployed young people under 18 still have to register for work, either at a jobcentre or careers office, as one of the conditions for receiving benefit.
