Jim McGovern calls for answers over Dundee Work Programme fiasco
Dundee West MP Jim McGovern today raised the on-going poor performance of the Work Programme in Dundee during Work and Pensions questions in the House of Commons.
Mr McGovern informed the House that under the most recent statistics over 90% of participants in Dundee’s work programme had not been helped to find work.
This was the third time since July last year that Mr McGovern has raised the matter in the House. He asked on this occasion if it would be third time lucky in receiving a substantial response.
