New government support announced for jobseekers
Jobseekers are to receive more aid from the government to help them find employment, it has been claimed.

The work and pensions secretary James Purnell has just announced a series of new measures which are to be introduced in the UK.

These are designed to help those who have been out of work for six months or longer.

He said that the government is set to spend hundred of millions of pounds on new training and skill incentives for employers.

"There will be a range of options that can help stop the sort of long-term unemployment that wrecked communities in the past," Mr Purnell added.

However, shadow work and pensions secretary Chris Grayling claimed that the government has already made "fake or exaggerated announcements on jobs".
