PMQs: Cameron and Miliband on work programme figures

Ed Miliband claimed people were more likely to get a job if they were not on the government's work programme.

Figures out on Tuesday showed 3.53% of people found a job for six months or more - missing the coalition's 5.5% target.

The prime minister said 200,000 people had been helped into work as he and the Labour leader traded blows on the statistics.

After the programme was attacked, David Cameron said of the Labour leader: "He wasted money and left people on the dole."
