To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what new measures he plans to adopt to get the long-term unemployed into work. [3860]

The training and enterprise councils in Wales and the Employment Service continue to provide a range of measures to help the long-term unemployed back into work. These include training for work and services such as client advice, job club, work trials and the job interview guarantee scheme offered by the Employment Service. In addition, North West Wales and Gwent training and enterprise councils, in partnership with the Employment Service, are piloting the sole traders employment initiative which helps sole traders to take on their first employee from among the long-term unemployed.
