The Government has dismissed claims that it is exploiting cheap Labour through its Work Programme, which was introduced to provide work experience for the long-term unemployed.
It follows allegations that a security firm, which is part of the programme, used jobseekers to steward the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and provided poor work conditions.
The case has raised questions not only about the Work Programme but also about the role of security firms during the Olympics.
