Conference - It's a privilege to open this debate, a debate we approach with a passion and care.

That's not a sign of weakness, that's a sign of our strength.

We are so much stronger and our policy is so much better for the work of Unison's Liz Snape, the TUC's Kay Carberry, for the leaders of our ten biggest councils, to those from business and the third sector who've worked so hard on our youth jobs taskforce.

Three years into the parliament it’s failed over a million people. That’s nearly nine out of ten people on this flagship programme. Worse of all, the government missed every single one of its minimum targets and in nearly half the country, the Work Programme is literally worse than doing nothing. No wonder the benefits bill is £20 billion higher than planned and no wonder the Chancellor himself was forced to attack ‘under-performing’ back to work programmes.
