Grayling: 'False campaign' against work experience

Employment Minister Chris Grayling has said that employers who are part of government work experience programmes are being made "jumpy" by an internet campaign "run by an organisation that is a front for the Socialist Workers' Party".

Speaking to Today presenter Evan Davis, he said that it was a "false campaign", run by a "small number of activists" in an attempt to destabilise the schemes.

After the interview, Mr Grayling clarified his statement that the group had hacked his email. It was not actually hacked, he said, but his email address was used on a complaint lodged with Tesco.
