The new deal for young people has been a success, helping more than 732,000 young people into work from its inception up to the end of November 2006 (the latest point for which figures are available). We are now considering the approach to welfare reform recommended in David Freud's report 'Reducing dependency, increasing opportunity: options for the future of welfare to work' published on 5 March 2007. The report recommended that we build on the success of new deal by building greater flexibility into employment services. We will respond in the summer, setting out our proposed next steps.
