The long-term unemployed who have to travel to the job centre every day in order to avoid sanctions on their benefits will be covered for travel by the Government, the Employment Minister said.
Esther McVey told Good Morning Britain the Government would "provide the cost" of travel for those who attend to job centre every day as part of the Help to Work scheme.
"What we are doing here is providing more support for more people. It's costing us money to do this because we believe everybody should benefit and if people can work, they should work."
