Liam Byrne MP, Labour's Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, in a speech at Chance UK, today said, "Thank you very much to Gracia and Chance UK for hosting us here this morning. Your extraordinary work providing support to primary school children who are at risk of developing anti-social or criminal behaviour is widely acknowledged on all sides of the politics - and it’s a great privilege to honour it this morning.

Liam Byrne MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, in a speech on social security for disabled people, said:

Five weeks ago Ed Miliband explained how a One Nation Labour government will reform social security so that once again it works for working people.

And for the Labour Party – the party of work – that starts with jobs.
So, over the past month, I’ve made a series of speeches about how we get our country back to work.

There’s a simple reason why.

Thank you very much Lynnette. I’m really glad to be here in Royal Leamington Spa.

I’m here because I’m after your advice on one of the hotter topics in politics. How we fix our broken social security system.

Lots of people in London say that people aren’t interested in politics.

That’s not my experience.

In fact, if you ever doubt people’s interest in politics, just start a debate about welfare reform.

Speech to IPPR North, 17 May 2013

There are few better places than here, to speak about the task of rebuilding Britain as a country of full employment.

Today we meet under 10 miles from Jarrow, where I spent this morning.

The town from where families hungry for work set off on the road to Westminster.

Walking in hunger they still inspire us down the ages.
