Early day motion 1109

Main content

Follow this EDM by:


That this House believes that requirements by the Department for Work and Pensions that claimants must send off at least 50 job applications a week or risk having their benefits stopped is unreasonable, punitive and fruitless; concludes that it is a way of removing people from the unemployment register both to save money and to artificially deflate the figures; and further concludes that the only honourable way to slash the numbers is to create meaningful jobs, which the Government has signally failed to do.
