HC Deb 13 January 1989 vol 144 c773W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many people had their unemployment benefit stopped because they were considered not to be available for work during the period January to October 1988 in(a) Burnley; (b) Pendle; (c) Hyndburn and (d) Rossendale and Darwen.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

I regret that information is not available in respect of the specific localities requested. Statistics on adjudication officers' decisions are not kept below sector level; Blackburn sector adjudication office covers the area specified, in addition to others. Nor do records differentiate between availability decisions reached during the currency of a claim and those that start before any benefit has been paid.
