§ Ms Jowell
From April 1998 to May 2000 no New Deal clients have been directly employed by Leeds City Council on the Employment Option.
Groundwork manages the New Deal ESF option in Leeds. Leeds City Council run the ETF programme for Groundwork. Since April 1998, 127 New Deal clients have started the Council's ETF option. Some of these will subsequently have started work for LCC—but the Employment Service does not have details of those engaged or specific numbers.
