'Tragedy' of 200,000 'hardcore' jobless, Stephen Crabb MP says

Wales has 200,000 "hardcore unemployed" people who have "never worked a day in their lives," says Wales Office minister Stephen Crabb.

The Conservative MP for Preseli Pembrokeshire said the Welsh government should be keen to ensure the success of UK government's welfare reforms that would break the cycle of "generations of wasted talent".

Mr Crabb spoke to Oliver Hides on the BBC's Good Morning Wales programme before delivering a speech on the subject in Cardiff.
