The Government's back-to-work schemes were ruled lawful by the High Court in London today. The scheme has been criticised as "forced labour".
Cait Reilly, 23, and Jamieson Wilson, 40, were both seeking the quashing of Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) regulations under which the back-to-work schemes were set up.
They are also applying for declarations that there have been violations of article four of the European Convention on Human Rights, which prohibits forced labour and slavery.
