Nicola has written for Left Foot Forward today about the impact the axing of the Future Jobs Fund is likely to have on young people.
The Trades Union Congress and the British Chambers of Commerce go head-to-head as they debate the future of regulation. Has the recession revealed the failure of the light-touch approach or is the recovery stifled by a tangle of red tape? Brendan Barber (TUC General Secretary) and Howard Reed (independent economist) will debate with David Frost (BCC Director General) and Professor Francis Chittenden (Manchester Business School), considering the arguments set out in the TUC’s Red Tape Delusion and the BCC’s Employment Regulation: Up for the Job?. The discussion will be chaired by Christine Buckley (editor of The Journalist and former industrial editor at The Times). The debate will be held at Congress House on 15th July from 12.30 – 2pm, and you can register online here.
