HC Deb 03 March 1987 vol 111 cc571-2W
81. Mr. Peter Bruinvels

asked the Paymaster General how many unemployed people in Leicester have benefited from the Leicester job club in securing employment; and how this compares with other job clubs.

Mr. Lee

Seventy long-term unemployed people passed through the three Leicester job clubs up to 6 February 1987. 43 (61 per cent.) found jobs. An additional nine people (13 per cent.) either found temporary work on the community programme or went into training or the enterprise allowance scheme.

These success rates are in the line with the national averages of 60 per cent. and 13 per cent. respectively.
