The administration of Jobcentre Plus is a matter for the Chief Executive of Jobcentre Plus, Lesley Strathie. I have asked her to provide the hon. Member with the information requested.

Letter from Lesley Strathie, dated 15 July 2008:

The Secretary of State has asked me to reply to your question asking how many staff were employed in each benefit delivery centre in each month since they were established. This is something that falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as Chief Executive of Jobcentre Plus.

Centralisation of benefit payments in the Benefit Delivery Centres commenced in April 2006 and was completed by March 2008. The number of full-time equivalents (FTEs) employed each month in Benefit Delivery Centres within the period April 2006 to May 2008 is attached as an Annex to this letter. Copies have also been placed in the Library.
