Jenny Marra  : Responding to the Findings of the Wood Commission

3 June 2014

Responding to the findings of the Wood Commission published today, Scottish Labour's Jenny Marra MSP said:

"Today's Wood Commission proposals are very welcome. They stress the value of vocational skills and opportunities which are vital to rebuild our economy.

"I would like the Scottish Government to be even more ambitious on reducing youth unemployment.

"Reducing it by 40% is a good start but only when it is in line with general employment rates will our future economy be in a healthier position.

"Ian Wood deserves our thanks and recognition for caring about youth employment and taking on this hugely important piece of work."
