MPs Organise Jobs Fair
A Jobs Fair's taken place in Milton Keynes, to try and cut the number of young people who are unemployed.
It was organised by Milton Keynes MPs Iain Stewart and Mark Lancaster (pictured) who told Heart their event on Wednesday 31 January 2013 was all about bringing together unemployed young people and potential employers under one roof.
They arranged for 31 different companies to attend the Jobs Fair at The Buszy, opposite Central Milton Keynes Railway Station. The employers included John Lewis, Santander and Network Rail.
Youth unemployment in Milton Keynes stands at 7.6%
Milton Keynes South MP Iain Stewart says in comparison to the rest of the UK that figure isn't too bad but we shouldn't be complacent.
"Youth unemployment's always a concern across the country. Milton Keynes is actually doing quite well compared to other areas but there's absolutely no room for complacency and we want to make sure young people have a full range of options."
