HC Deb 09 February 1993 vol 218 cc589-90W
Mr. Ron Davies

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what percentage of those referred by the employment service to employment training actually started in the valleys initiative area between April 1991 and March 1992.

All decisions on claims for unemployment benefit are made by the independent adjudicating authorities.

Information about the length of disqualification periods imposed is not collated or published as each is decided in the light of the circumstances surrounding the individual case. Without knowledge of these circumstances no meaningful interpretation of the information could be made.

I hope this is helpful.

As decided by the Administration Committee of the House of Commons, Chief Executive replies to written Parliamentary Questions will now be published in the Official Report. I will also place a copy of this letter in the Library of the House.
