Youth Unemployment

It was interesting to see that after 18 months opposing the Government's economic policy, the Shadow Chancellor recently told the Today programme that Labour would have to do the same.

In the debate on unemployment today I had heard enough opposition MPs berating the coalition so intervened to ask:

Will the hon. Gentleman explain whether he agrees with the Shadow Chancellor, who said the other day, "we are going to have keep all these cuts"?

Labour MP Geraint Davies replied:

I am not opposing having to make savings and cuts.

It is good to know where the opposition stand.
