asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many companies and how many employees were the subject of payments under the temporary employment subsidy at the latest date, and at what rates.

I regret that information is not available in the precise form requested. As at 31st October an estimated 104,580 jobs in 2,050 establishments were currently being supported by main scheme TES and 28,850 jobs in 570 establishments by TES (Supplement).TES is paid at the rate of £20 per week for each full-time job supported and £10 per week for part-time jobs. TES (Supplement) is paid at half these rates.
