Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions when he expects to correct the statistics on second tier provision in 2004-05 following the validation of more class one national insurance contributions. 
Mr. Plaskitt: The DWP are due to receive updated data from HMRC about valid class one contributions during July. We will then, under the national statistics protocols, analyse the effect of this update and decide whether a revision of the statistics is appropriate.
Mr. Frank Field:
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many participants in the new deal for disabled people were or have been on the
scheme for more than 12 months since July 2001; and how many participants left for employment in each month since July 2001. 
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, NDDP job brokers.
When NDDP participants enter employment, they are not necessarily counted as leavers from the programme as they are entitled to a minimum of twenty-six weeks in-work support from their new deal provider.
Information in the table represents those people who left NDDP but elected to either not access the in-work support element of the programme, or to utilise this only for a short period of time. These participants are therefore the only group that appear under the definition of those leaving directly to employment.

|Month||Number of leavers with a recorded immediate destination of employment|
1. All figures have been rounded to the nearest 10.
2. Latest data relate to the end of November 2006. A comparison between leavers to employment before and after April 2007 is not valid because of a change in the way data is collected on sustained employment.
3. New deal for disabled people was introduced in July 2001.
