MPs warn the government against ending the Future Jobs Fund early

Ending the Future Jobs Fund early could have a negative effect on unemployment figures warns MPs. The Work and Pensions Committee call for the government to come up with an alternative solution to ending the Future Jobs Fund early. The Work and Pensions Committee have warned the government that ending the Future Jobs Fund early could have a negative effect on UK youth unemployment figures. The £1 billion fund, which was set up to help young people get into unemployment, is due to end in March - a year earlier than planned. The Work Programme scheme has been designed to replace the fund but won't come into force in June - something which the committee believe is simply not good enough.
