Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Employment Participation, in writing, on 28 August 2008:

In respect of the Personal Support Program: what is the average duration between referral and commencement of job seekers for (a) priority 1, (b) priority 2, (c) priority 3, and (d) priority 4?


Mr Brendan O’Connor (Minister for Employment Participation) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

In the year to 30 June 2008, the national average duration between referral to the caseload of a service provider and commencement in the Personal Support Programme (PSP) was 15.6 days. This does not include the time participants may spend on the waitlist prior to referral to a PSP provider. The requested information by priority level is not readily ascertainable, and to provide the requested answer would require an unreasonable diversion of departmental resources.
