Select committee calls for government action on ethnic minority youth unemployment
20 September 2012
The influential Work and Pensions Select Committee has called on the government to assess how effective its youth unemployment programme has been in getting ethnic minority young people into work
The call was made in the committee’s new report on youth unemployment, which cites evidence submitted by Runnymede.
Runnymede director Rob Berkeley presented oral evidence to the committee as part of its inquiry earlier this year.
The committee also called on the government to introduce targeted policies to reduce ethnic minority youth unemployment if it was found to be necessary.
