Motion text

That this House notes with concern that the number of economically inactive people of working age has risen by over 120,000 in the last year alone; is particularly disturbed that there are more than a million young people who are neither working nor in full-time education or training and that this number continues to rise; recognises that the New Deal has failed to tackle the problem of economic inactivity; notes that up to June only 38 per cent. of leavers from the New Deal for Young People left for unsubsidised employment; calls on the Government to take urgent action to tackle this problem; and urges the Government to replace the New Deal with more effective proposals.
