To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment how many of the 1.7 million persons placed into work, identified within the 1994–95 Employment Service annual report and accounts were (a) full-time and permanent, (b) part-time and permanent, (c) full-time temporary or (d) part-time temporary. [38498]

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 M. E. G. Fogden to Mr. David Hinchliffe, dated 23 October 1995:

The Secretary of State has asked me to reply to your question about the number of unemployed people who were placed into work in 1994/95.
I am pleased to tell you that the Employment Service exceeded its target of 1.7 million and actually placed 1,876,856 unemployed people into work in 1994/95. This is made up of the following:-
  • (a) Full-time and permanent jobs - 900,933
  • (b) Part-time and permanent jobs - 435,069
  • (c) Full-time temporary jobs - 382,849
  • (d) Part-time temporary jobs - 110,223
  • The above figure is 47,782 less than the overall total. This is because a small number of placings are not captured on our computerised recording system in a way which allows a distinction to be made in the form you have requested.
    I hope this is helpful.
