To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment how many people who have been found capable of work under the all-work test of incapacity have subsequently signed on as unemployed; and how many of these were (i) previously receiving invalidity benefit and (ii) new claimants of incapacity benefit. 
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. Keith Bradley, dated 23 October 1995:
The Secretary of State for Social Security has asked me to reply to your question about the number of people found capable of work under the All Work Test of Incapacity Benefit (IB), who have subsequently signed on as unemployed; and how many of these were previously receiving invalidity benefit and how many were new claimants of 1B. This is something which falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as Chief Executive of the Employment Service.
In the period April to September 1995, 8,974 people disallowed 1B following the All Work Test have made a claim to unemployment benefit (UB). No figures are available on how many of these were previously receiving invalidity benefit and how many were new claimants of IB.
I hope this is helpful.
