Here in the Rother Valley long-term unemployment is still unacceptably high, with 140 young people out of work for a year or more.

We urgently need action to get local people into work. A compulsory jobs guarantee, would get any adult out of work for more than two years, or young person out of work for a year, into a job – one they would be required to take.

Ministers must get off their hands and start helping now before they condemn a whole generation to joblessness.
