Question:
To ask the Minister for Employment and Learning, using home addresses, to detail the number of people who are availing of the Local Employment Intermediary Service, broken down by council area.


Answer:
I have placed tables in the Assembly Library and on my department’s website at http://www.delni.gov.uk/ . The tables at Annex A detail the number of people who have availed of the Local Employment Intermediary Service (LEMIS), broken down by council area and the number of people who have found full-time employment, through the Local Employment Intermediary Service, broken down by council area, since LEMIS 2 began in April 2011.
Clients living in LEMIS designated areas are free to choose the services of any provider, except in NI Areas 1, 2 and 3 [see Annex C for details of contract provision in Northern Ireland] where individuals must avail of LEMIS from the contracted provider for those areas.
