§ Mr. Nellist
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what research his Department is undertaking or has commissioned concerning the Social Security Act 1989; and when he expects the research to be published.
My Department is presently undertaking research on the implementation of the actively seeking employment condition for benefit entitlement. A study on the perception of employers to this condition has also been commissioned from the Institute for Manpower Studies. It is not possible at this time to provide an indication of the timing of any publication.
