Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what existing pilot schemes have been promoted by the Department for Work and Pensions since 2005; and when each pilot is scheduled to complete. [HL2883]

The activities of the Department for Work and Pensions cover a very wide range of programmes and services. Information on all departmental pilots since 2005 is not collated centrally and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.

Information about current Jobcentre-Plus-led pilots and pathfinders is collated centrally and is set out in the table.
