Mrs. McGuire: The following Ministers have attended the International Labour Organisation's annual conference since 2000:

New Deal for Disabled People

Mr. Frank Field: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many participants in the new deal for disabled people left the scheme for sustainable employment in each month since it was initiated. [137922]

Mr. Jim Murphy [holding answer 18 May 2007]: Up to the end of November 2006, new deal for disabled people (NDDP) had been successful in helping 134,160 people into work, including 101,720 people who had registered with, and received assistance from, an NDDP job broker.

Information on job sustainability is available to March 2006. Of the 78,970 people who had gained a job through a job broker to March 2006, 54,090 had gained a sustained job.

A new deal for disabled people (NDDP) job is regarded as sustained when a person who has been placed into work through an NDDP job broker remains in work for 13 out of 39 weeks. Prior to October 2003, an NDDP job was regarded as sustained when a person, placed into work through an NDDP job broker, remained in work for 26 out of 39 weeks.

Information on those who are recorded as leaving NDDP with an immediate destination of employment, which was also recorded as a sustained job, is in the following table.
