The unemployment figures published earlier this week show a welcome fall in overall unemployment. However, the Government needs to do much more to tackle youth unemployment.

The figures show the number of unemployed 18-24 year olds has risen and there are more than 700,000 young people out of work.

The Government must act to give young people the chance to earn a living with better quality apprenticeships and must help the thousands left behind in the last five years.
