asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many people have gained employment through the special temporary employment programme scheme; what is the expected average duration of such employment; and how many people have benefited from it in the Farnham parliamentary constituency.

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that, as at 28th April 1978, 26 schemes had been approved under the special temporary employment programme (STEP), providing 200 jobs. The average duration of an individual's employment under STEP is expected to be 17 weeks. No schemes under STEP have been approved in the Farnham parliamentary constituency. Information is not available on the number of people in the Farnham parliamentary constituency who have benefited from employment under STEP.
