Bill Cash demands Government take action to help find work for 1,225 unemployed claimants in Stone

Press release 16/12/09

Today Bill Cash stated “Since it has come to light that we now have 1,225 unemployed claimants in Stone, I believe it is essential that the Government takes action, wherever it can, to help those who are unemployed get back into work. The Government has so far failed my constituents but action is now crucial.
 
“I do not support Harriet Harman’s comments in Parliament today on falling unemployment and I have written to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions so that they can further investigate what can be done to provide assistance to those unemployed in Stone.”
 
Constituency unemployment figures for November 2009 were published at 9.30am today by the Office for National Statistics.
 
The number of unemployed claimants in Stone constituency in November 2009 was 1,225. This represents a rate of 2.9% of the economically active population, the 571st highest of the 646 UK constituencies. The number of claimants is 424 higher than in November 2008 and 12 higher than in October 2009.


Bill Cash backs Young Enterprise – and welcomes Council’s securing of funding to coach business leaders of the future

Press release: 19/10/2012

 
MP for Stone, Bill Cash, today said he backs the Young Enterprise charity and supports Staffordshire County Council’s recent decision – along with Stafford Borough Council – to fund Stafford and Stone’s Young Enterprise project.
 
The national Business & Education Charity, which launched its 2012 - 2013 campaign in September, aims to educate young people about enterprise and business in order to encourage the start up of new businesses and self-employment in the future. 
 
The funding will allow the project to run a number of exciting activities over the year. Teachers and business mentors will work with young people in the classroom around the skills and benefits of business, and help facilitate the start-up of small enterprises in the school. 
 
Most recently the project helped start the “Sock Tree Company”, from Alleynes High School which produces sock monkeys and went on to win area, county and regional awards.
 
Cash said:
 
“I attended an important event in my constituency this year at which young people from Alleynes school in Stone were selling produce, based on proper commercial principles.
 
“They were learning key enterprise skills and it is wonderful that young people are given the opportunity and skills to learn about business in this way. 
 
“Our young entrepreneurs are tomorrow’s business leaders, and with their determination, will provide the very engine of growth for the future which is required in our national and local economy in Staffordshire.”

 Press release 12/10/2012

 
Stone MP, Bill Cash, has backed the new Apprentice Helpline, launched by Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership, which is continuing to provide businesses in Stafford with the vital advice they need to successfully take on an apprentice.

Cash said:
“Apprenticeships present a real opportunity for many young people and can bring huge business benefits at the same time.
“I very much support the launch of a new Apprenticeship Helpline and I hope that it makes life easier for local businesses and gives them the necessary advice and expertise they need to take on an apprentice.”
