Chris Grayling: Change to work scheme will help companies

The Employment Minister Chris Grayling said the changes made to the governments unpaid work scheme were made to help companies and not because of criticism of the scheme.

There had been complaints that young people were being forced to work for free.

He said the changes to the scheme had been made after talks with some of the companies involved.

He also stressed that the scheme was voluntary.
