§ Mr. Richard Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Employment, in view of the 16,000 redundancies that have occurred in South-West Yorkshire over the past two years, if he will make a statement on the payment of temporary employment subsidy for 31,201 jobs in the same area.
§ Mr. Golding
TES is paid only where an employer is able to defer a proposed redundancy affecting 10 or more workers in an establishment. Many redundancies take place where no application for TES is made.
