§ 53. Mr. Holt
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what plans his Department has to assist job seekers wishing to locate in different regions of the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Lee
My Department operates a number of provisions to assist job seekers wishing to locate in different regions of the United Kingdom, including the travel-to-interview scheme, and the NATVACS computerised vacancy bank. These are being kept under review. From 1 January 1988 assistance under the travelto-interview scheme has been extended to cover unemployed job seekers with interviews to attend in Northern Ireland.
