Jobseeker’s Allowance

Volume 506: debated on Tuesday 2 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many claimants of jobseeker's allowance have been identified through the Labour Market System as being unemployed for 22 out of 24 months in the latest period for which figures are available. (317628)

The information from the Labour Market System is not currently available.

We are not able to provide alternative information for all current claimants from the jobseeker's allowance databases (rather than the Labour Market System) because this would involve complex data linking and analysis and would be possible only at a disproportionate cost.
