[Martin Caton in the Chair] — National Apprenticeship Scheme (21 Jul 2010)

Richard Graham: ...told the other House that his colleagues never understood the fact that the Government do not create jobs, but set, or fail to set, the framework in which businesses create jobs. I also agree with Oona King, who recently regretted that new Labour's belief in social justice counted for nothing if it forgot successful economic stewardship. Our mission is therefore to spread apprenticeships,...

This week's G20, led by our Prime Minister, will seek to do exactly that, following on from the Gleneagles summit and other major initiatives. Of course, Governments lead by consent and, in general, they must reflect the...
