Delighted that this story has appeared this week, as you can see below.
On the week that we launch our second Action Plan for Jobs, containing some 300 actions that will sustain our growth and ensure that we continue to activate employment throughout a range of sectors, this news comes at a welcome time.
Often, as any economist will tell you, there can be a lag between a measure being taken and its effectiveness being seen. In our case, it’s easy to forget that we’ve been in Government for two years now – yet the fruits of our labour are beginning to take effect.
I commend the work that has been done to get us to this point, and I have faith that our collective ideas will take us further.
