I can confirm that. We are operating a model whereby three levels of intensivity of support will be available, depending on what the individual requires. I made the point that up to 30 months of support will be provided. That includes 18 months of pre-work support and up to 12 months of in-work support, which is a significant advance on what was in place before and on what we expect in the work and health programme.

I am alive to the concern that those who need support most must have it, and that is what we are putting in place in our programme.
