HC Deb 06 November 1995 vol 265 c632W
Mr. Byers

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment how many people are on the community action scheme. [41833]

Mr. Forth

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. Stephen Byers, dated 6 November 1995:

The Secretary of State has asked me to respond to your question about the number of people presently on the Community Action programme.

At the end of September 1995 there were 12,900 people on Community Action.

I hope this is helpful.
