The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the authority to reply.

Letter from Dennis Roberts:

The Director General for the Office for National Statistics has been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking what estimate (a) the Office of National Statistics and (b) the UK Statistics Authority has made of the number of net additional jobs created by the Government's stimulus initiatives. I am replying in his absence. (312296)

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is the executive office of the UK Statistics Authority with responsibility for the production of statistics. To date, the ONS has not made an estimate of the number of net additional jobs created by the Government's stimulus initiatives.
