To ask the Secretary of State for Employment when and where the figures for unemployment benefit disqualifications for the quarter to December 1992 will be published.
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 Mr. J. Turner to Ms Angela Eagle, dated 2 April 1993:
As the Employment Service is an Executive Agency, it is the responsibility of Mike Fogden, the Agency's Chief Executive to answer parliamentary questions about relevant operational matters. In his absence, I am replying to your question to the Secretary of State about the publication of statistics relating to unemployment benefit disqualifications for the quarter ending 31 December 1992.
The Analysis of Adjudication Officers' Decisions for the quarter ending 31 December 1992 has now been published and copies were sent to the Library of the House on 29 March.
As decided by the Administration Committee of the House of Commons, Chief Executive replies to written Parliamentary Questions will now be published in the Official Report. I will also place a copy of this letter in the Library of the House.
