To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many clients have been (a) advised and (b) placed by the Amesbury jobcentre in each of the past 12 months.[116056]

The administration of Jobcentre Plus is a matter for the chief executive of Jobcentre Plus, David Anderson. He will write to the hon. Member.

Letter from David Anderson to Robert Key, dated 19 June 2003:

As Jobcentre Plus is an Executive Agency, the Secretary of State has asked me to reply direct to your question about how many clients have been advised and placed by the Amesbury Jobcentre in each of the past 12 months. This is something that falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as Chief Executive of the Agency.
The information requested on the number of people advised by Amesbury Jobcentre is not available. Records are not kept of the number of people given employment advice. Although statistics are kept for the number of people registered as unemployed with Amesbury Jobcentre we offer advice to a wide range of people including lone parents, people claiming incapacity benefits and people already in employment. Therefore the number of registered unemployed people using the Jobcentre is not a reliable guide for the total number of these people benefiting from our services.

The number of people placed into work by the Amesbury Jobcentre is shown in table:
