Winchester MP Brine backs hard line over dole
12:00pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
DAVID Cameron’s threat to strip dole money from jobless under-25s who refuse training has been backed by a Hampshire MP.
He said he wanted to look at the “practical detail”, but added: “Giving young people a clear, positive choice to go to school or college, do an apprenticeship or get a job is something everyone can support.
“We have to deal in hope and giving young people the right direction from the start is the essence of that.
“A life on the dole is the opposite.”
Mr Cameron said that a future Conservative Government would expect young people to be “earning or learning” – or lose all state support.
