asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many job opportunities in the Gravesend constituency have so far been protected by temporary employment subsidy, the recruitment subsidy for school leavers, youth employment subsidy, and the work experience scheme; and what are the corresponding figures for the Medway employment area as a whole.
