Youth jobs scheme expanded


The government is pledging a further 85,000 opportunities to help get young people into work.

The scheme aims to help 45,000 young people to find jobs in retail, tourism, leisure and hospitality.

And it includes a pledge by retailer Morrisons to give extra training to all its 36,000 employees who are under 25.
