Grayling attacks jobless figures under Labour

A minister accused the previous Labour government of "hiding" the true scale of youth and said the coalition was making jobless figures more "honest".

Speaking ahead of new figures on Wednesday, Mr Grayling said that at any one time up to 40,000 young people were on a training scheme under Labour so did not show up on claimant count figures, even though they were still unemployed.
