Labour guarantees jobs for young unemployed
The Labour leader Ed Miliband has announced that young people who have been out of work for more than a year would be guaranteed a job for six months by a future Labour government.
Anyone who refused to take part in the scheme would lose benefits.
He said the initiative would be paid for with money raised from a bank bonus tax.
