The administration of Jobcentre Plus is a matter for the chief executive of Jobcentre Plus, Darra Singh. I have asked him to provide the hon. Member with the information requested.

Letter from Darra Singh:

The Secretary of State has asked me to reply to your question asking how many job vacancies were advertised in jobcentres in (a) City of Chester constituency (b) Cheshire (c) Flintshire and (d) the North West in September 2010. This is something that falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as the Chief Executive of Jobcentre Plus.

The data requested for September is not available. The Jobcentre vacancy data for September 2010 has been withdrawn; this is due to problems identified with the source data, which we are currently investigating.

I am able to provide the data for August and October 2010 shown in the following table.

Number of advertised vacancies in the areas shown
Area August 2010 live unfilled vacancies October 2010 live unfilled vacancies
City of Chester 796 1,018
Cheshire 4,053 4,747
Flintshire 922 963
North West 32,778 40,293
