Select Committee Enquiry - a summary of submissions

We reported a while ago the submission that A4e made to the Work & Pensions Select Committee's enquiry into the "management and administration of contracted employment programmes". There are now links to all the submissions on the House of Commons website; and they are helpfully summarised on the Indus Delta site. There are some very interesting points from providers, representative bodies and the DWP. The Public and Commercial Services Union make powerful points which are treated rather patronisingly in this summary, and it's worth reading their submission in full. The union's stance is summed up in "PCS believes that it is wrong to allow private sector contractors to profit from the unemployed." But they are a lone voice in this welter of opinions.
