Cameron's Government now so incompetent it can't even organise work experience - Byrne

Liam Byrne MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to the Appeal Court ruling on the Employment, Skills and Enterprise scheme, said:

“It beggars belief that David Cameron’s Government is now so incompetent it can’t even organise work experience. Work experience is crucial in helping many young people get ready for work.

“Two years in, David Cameron and Iain Duncan Smith’s so-called welfare revolution is in a state of advanced chaos. With almost one million young people out of work, what we need now is a tough but fair compulsory jobs guarantee that ensures every young person has the chance to work and no option to sit forever on the dole.”
