I have been asked to reply.

Following evaluation of the initial trials and pilots in 2007 and 2008, implementation of the In and Out of Work processes has been rolling out nationally since October 2008.

The In and Out of Work Project has been working to ensure the new service reaches all local authority areas in England, Scotland and Wales and to date, it has been implemented in 370 out of 408 authorities. Rollout is scheduled to be completed by March 2010.
