Labour: Cebr unemployment report - Liam Byrne comment
Liam Byrne MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, said:
"With unemployment still unacceptably high, and Britain sliding back into a recession built in Downing Street, Londoners will be extremely worried by predictions that there is worse to come.
"Ministers can not afford to continue to stand aside, they must now accept responsibility for Britain's jobs crisis and take decisive action.
"They should start with Labour’s five point plan, including a Real Jobs Guarantee, paid for by a tax on bankers’ bonuses, that would guarantee a proper job for 110,000 young people out of work for a year, which they would have be made to take."
