To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many people have entered full-time work with a permanent contract after completing the Universal Credit Youth Obligation Support Programme; how many people have been placed into zero-hour contracts after completing that programme; and how many have re-entered that programme after finishing a short-term contract.

Information on the type of employment entered by those who have completed the Youth Obligation Support Programme and the number of re-entries into the programme is not centrally recorded and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost.
