I am grateful to the noble Lord for that reply. In the Prime Minister's speech at the Labour Party conference, he referred to the,

"100,000 new young people's jobs we are already creating".

He went on to talk about a further 10,000 skilled internships and 10,000 green work placements. Is all that enough, in view of the fact that the young unemployed now number close to 1 million?
