Crawley MP congratulates Local RBLI Work Programme Centre for vital role in reducing town’s unemployment

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

Crawley MP, Henry Smith, today visited Royal British Legion Industries, who work with G4S, and their Work Programme centre to congratulate staff on their vital role they are performing in the Government’s flagship scheme to help long-term unemployed people into sustainable jobs.

Henry commented:

“I congratulate the hard working staff of the town’s Work Programme centre in helping to equip those who have experienced long term unemployment to get back into work.

“Local unemployment has continued to fall to 2.7 percent which shows that this Government is getting people off benefits and back into work.  Since the Government came to office in 2010, there are over 1,000 less Crawley residents on out of work benefits, which I think is a record on which the staff of the RBLI Work Programme should be rightly proud of.

“Over the past year the number of workless households across the UK has fallen by 182,000 and overall by 425,000 since the election. Each one of those statistics tells a story about people who will be able to get into work, provide for their family and make something of their lives.”

Crawley MP Congratulates Local Firm On Successful £100m Deal For London 2012 Security Services

The Manor Royal based G4S has won a deal to recruit, train and manage over 10,000 security staff for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Henry Smith said:

“This £100 million contract is one in a series of successful business deals won across Crawley which help place local business at the heart of the upcoming 2012 Games.

“Well done to the G4S team that worked so hard to put together and sell a winning bid which will undoubtedly create yet more jobs locally and assist other businesses.  The bid was won against the backdrop of tough competition and it is a true testament to G4S that they have been appointed for this essential role.

“I am pleased to see the extent to which Crawley is benefiting from the London Games and will continue to try and build on this platform further still.”
