Dear Hartlepool Council,

How many individuals did you give "placements" under the Mandatory Work Activity scheme that ran from 2011 until 2016 whereby individuals had to 'work' for their benefits or risk being 'sanctioned'.

Of those individuals that participated how many completed the 4 consecutive weeks?

Of those individuals that participated how many if any secured employment with Hartlepool Borough Council?

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Smith
