A Government scheme designed to get the long-term unemployed back into work or face benefits sanctions, will get more people "on the road to a more secure future", the Prime Minister has said.
David Cameron backed the Department of Work and Pensions tougher measures so "everyone who can work is in work".
A key part of our long-term economic plan is to move to full employment, making sure that everyone who can work is in work.
We are seeing record levels of employment in Britain, as more and more people find a job, but we need to look at those who are persistently stuck on benefits.
This scheme will provide more help than ever before, getting people into work and on the road to a more secure future.
