Question:

Written answers (Question to Employment)

There is no record of receipt of an application for Jobseekers Allowance from the person concerned. 

An application form has now been issued to the person concerned, and an appointment given to attend the local Intreo Centre.  Once an application and any necessary supporting documentation has been received, a decision will be made as quickly as possible.

I trust that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
