Brown promises boost for jobseekers
Prime minister in waiting Gordon Brown has pledged to help up to 200,000 people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance get back into work.

Speaking to the GMB Union, Mr Brown said that a number of work partnerships with industries such as hospitality and retail will help to get more Britons back to work over the next few years.

He pledged to "train British workers for…British jobs" by offering skills training, work trials and guaranteed job interviews for successful participants in the scheme, as well as a number of subsidised work placements.

"I want to sign partnerships with all the major industries, that they will help British workers to access the jobs that are available," Mr Brown commented.

The most recent figures from the Office for National Statistics indicated that the number of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance fell by 57,100 in the first three months of 2007 compared with the same period last year.
