To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many people were (a) on the NOMIS register and (b) non-claimants of jobseeker"s allowance, but users of the Jobcentre Service at Sutton Jobcentre in each of the last three years. [112638]

The administration of Jobcentre Plus is a matter for the acting Chief Executive of the Jobcentre Plus, Clare Dodgson. She will write to the hon. Member.

Letter from Clare Dodgson to Mr. Burstow, dated 22 May 2003:

As Jobcentre Plus is an Executive Agency, the Secretary of State has asked me to reply direct to your question about users of Sutton Jobcentre in each of the last three years. This is something that falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as Acting Chief Executive of the Agency.
The number of people registered at Sutton Jobcentre, as shown by NOMIS, in March for the last three years was as follows:

Number of people registered

20011,491
20021,732
20031,950

It is not possible to give a figure for the number of non-claimants of jobseekers allowance who use Sutton Jobcentre. Records are not kept of the number of people who make enquiries or who receive help with general employment advice through the Jobcentre. Statistics are kept for the number of job submissions made for non-claimants of jobseeker"s allowance but, as an individual may be submitted for a number of different jobs, this is not a reliable guide for the number of these people using our services.

I hope this is helpful.
