The Government’s Kickstart scheme is failing to deliver for young people – Jonathan Reynolds

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, commenting on the latest Government announcement on the Kickstart scheme, said:

“These latest figures show the Government’s Kickstart scheme is failing to deliver for young people, creating opportunities for just 3% of the 600,000 young people unemployed. The Government must be much more ambitious if we are to prevent a generation scarred by long term unemployment.

“It is worrying that months into this jobs crisis we still have no plan from this Government to tackle rising unemployment and get Britain back to work.”
