– BBC: Back-to-work plan to help fewer people

Laura Kuenssberg BBC Chief political correspondent reported on NewsNight that:

The government’s new “work programme” will actually help fewer people than the existing schemes that ministers are scrapping, the BBC has learned.


Officials have said they expect 605,000 people to go through the Work Programme scheme in 2011-12 and 565,000 in 2012-13.


About 850,000 people went through the last government’s schemes in 2009-10 which are now being scrapped.
