Labour is calling on David Cameron to stop wasting time and apply for European funding to tackle the youth unemployment crisis. Other countries are already ahead of the game but the UK government has yet to submit a plan.
Euro Candidate, Theresa Griffin said: "What kind of message does it send to those out of work and looking for help when the government is failing to get its act together, come up with a plan and apply for this money?"
Euro Candidate, Afzal Khan said: "It is unacceptable. The Tories have delayed and dithered in applying for funds and implementing these schemes to help our young people find work."
Funding, which Labour MEPs campaigned for, is available under the Youth Guarantee Scheme, which guarantees a young person employment, training or an apprenticeship within four months of becoming unemployed.
