New Clause 1 — Jobseeker's allowance
Food Labelling Regulations (Amendment)
Lynne Jones (Birmingham, Selly Oak, Labour)
My right hon. Friend's interpretation of the views that I and other Labour Members expressed is a travesty. We are saying that the voluntary approach has been shown to be more effective in engaging people in the world of work, and we should pursue that approach. We are saying that any schemes that involve sanctions or people losing their benefit should be subject to a pilot scheme that compares that approach with a voluntary approach, so that we can see which works best.
