§ Mr. Terry Fields
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security whether the research project, Effect of the Actively Seeking Work Provisions, has been completed; and if he will publish the results.
§ Mr. Jack
The report on the research commissioned by the Department into the effects of the changes to unemployment benefits legislation operative from October 1989, including the introduction of the "actively seeking employment" condition, has not yet been completed. A copy of the report will, in due course, be placed in the Library.
