Legislation will be brought forward to help achieve full employment and provide people with the security of a job. New duties will require my ministers to report annually on job creation and apprenticeships.
Analysis: This is a reference to the full employment and welfare benefits bill, which, despite the title, seems to be devoted to lowering the benefits cap (the total a non-working family can receive in benefits) from £26,000 to £23,000 a year and freezing most working-age benefits for two years from 2016-17. But ministers will also have to present annual reports to parliament on the progress they are making towards achieving the highest employment in the G7 and creating 3m more apprenticeships.
