§ Mr. Battle
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if she will list all those constituencies which do not have a jobcentre within their boundary.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
Responsibility for the subject of the question has been delegated to the Employment Service Agency under its chief executive. I have asked him to arrange for a reply to be given.
Letter from M. E. G. Fogden to Mr. John Battle, dated 9 March 1993.As the Employment Service is an Executive Agency, the Secretary of State has asked me to write to you direct to respond to your Parliamentary Question about constituencies which do not have a Jobcentre within their boundary. This is something which falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as Chief Executive of the Agency.Unfortunately the information you requested is not readily available, as the areas served by Jobcentres do not correspond with Parliamentary Constituencies. Therefore it will take some time to compile the details. However, I will reply fully to your question as soon as I receive the information.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.
