§ Mr. Ashton
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the procedures for advising school leavers without jobs and students of their eligibility for benefit.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The Department has a leaflet (NP12) which provides school-leavers and students with an explanation of national insurance contributions and some information on the social security system. The leaflet is issued by careers offices, and is also available from DHSS local offices.
