HC Deb 17 June 1997 vol 296 cc134-5W
Mr. Willetts

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment, pursuant to his answer of 10 June, Official Report, column 366, what estimates have been made to date of the costs of providing additional support to single parents at job centres. [3949]

Mr. Alan Howarth

We are considering a number of alternatives as we develop our Welfare to Work plans. At this early stage it is not possible to give a firm estimate of the likely costs.
