Job centres would become "jobs and skills hubs" and a car scrappage scheme would induce motorists to buy electric vehicles in proposals for economic recovery outlined today.

The Confederation of British Industry has written to the First and Deputy First Ministers with plans for an "ambitious" recovery to minimise the human cost of economic downturn.

Director general Carolyn Fairbairn and Northern Ireland director Angela McGowan say a focus on "dynamic enterprise" will enable the region to get ahead in the global economy.
