Baroness Jeger

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their present policy regarding the payment of unemployment benefit to people on Community Programmes in respect of days on which they are not working.

Lord Skelmersdale

Our policy is that those working part-time in the Community Programme should not be able to supplement their earnings with unemployment benefit for the days when they are not working.
