Politicians plan business visit

Have your say

shadow treasury minister Rachel Reeves and Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey are visiting a Rotherham firm providing online careers advice, after figures showed youth unemployment has hit a new record high.

In Rotherham, the number of 18 to 24-year-olds claiming job seekers’ allowance almost between January and December last year, while in Barnsley there was a 38 per cent increase.

Labour MP Mr Healey and Ms Reeves will visit U-Explore, Magna 34 Business Park, Rotherham to find out more about their work providing online careers advice and training to schools, councils and businesses.
