Jim Cousins: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what the (a) inflows and (b) outflows of Jobcentre Plus vacancies were in each quarter since June 2004 in each area of the north-east region. 
The Secretary of State has asked me to reply to your question asking what the inflows and outflows of Jobcentre Plus vacancies were in each area of the North East region in each quarter since June 2004. This is something which falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as Acting Chief Executive of Jobcentre Plus.

We are committed to enhancing and improving our vacancy services, and have created an e-services portfolio for employers. This enables them to advertise and manage their own vacancies, and has resulted in an increasing number of our customers applying directly to employers. These vacancies appear on our Labour Market System and are included in the figures above.
We are also developing improved partnerships with private recruitment agencies to increase the range and number of job opportunities available to our customers. This has resulted in the introduction of a 'Jobs Warehouse' which is accessible through internet services. These vacancies do not appear on the Labour Market System and consequently are not included in the figures above.
Sir Malcolm Rifkind: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what his latest estimate is of the cost per additional job created by the new deal programmes; and what assumptions are made in making that calculation. 
Margaret Hodge: The new deal is not a job creation scheme. It is designed to help unemployed and disadvantaged people into work or training. It has already been successful in helping more than 1.3 million people into employment.
Research has been conducted on the macro-economic effect of new deal for young people (NDYP) and new deal for lone parents (NDLP). Information is not available on new deal 25 Plus, new deal for disabled or new deal for partners.
The National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR) undertook a detailed macro-economic analysis of NDYP until March 2002 2 . NIESR calculated the net budgetary cost per job was £7,000 per annum (excluding the environmental task force and voluntary sector options) or £4,000 per annum when these two options are included.
5 Oct 2005 : Column 2828W
NIESR calculated that by March 2000, NDYP had reduced unemployment among all age groups by 35,000. They also estimated that NDYP raised youth employment by 15,000 (excluding those on the environmental task force and voluntary sector options). Adding these two options raised this to 30,000 more young people in work due to NDYP.
Evidence on the cost effectiveness of new deal for lone parents (NDLP) comes from the cost benefit analysis of NDLP carried out by departmental economists. The findings were published in the NDLP evaluation synthesis report in June 2003 3 .
A calculation of cost effectiveness takes into account the additional earnings from movements into work and the costs of running the programme in 200001. NDLP provided a significant net economic gain to society, with a net benefit of over £4,400 from each additional job, and a total net gain of £115 million.
The net impact on public finance was also calculated. This included the cost of in-work credits and benefits such as the working families' tax credit. NDLP in 200102 resulted in a net exchequer saving of £1,600 for each additional job entry; a total saving of £41.5 million.
Mr. Austin Mitchell: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many people from the Great Grimsby constituency have been on the new deal in each year since its introduction; and if he will make a statement.
