Questioning the Employment Minister about how we can develop specific strategies to combat long term unemployment in areas with High Employment

Michelle Donelan questioning Employment Minister about long term unemployment
This afternoon I questioned the Minister of State for Employment, Priti Patel MP, about how we can develop specific strategies to help areas that have very low levels of unemployment but have proportionally high levels of long term unemployment.

This is a problem in the Chippenham constituency and we need to develop plans to help our people back into work by really addressing the causes of their unemployment and tackling them, not the symptoms.
