James Sunderland raises problems businesses face in recruiting enough staff

James Sunderland questions the Government about helping businesses recruit enough staff and efforts to get as many people as possible back into the workplace.

James Sunderland (Bracknell) (Con)

I am fortunate to represent a part of the country that is blessed with near-full employment. However, businesses in Bracknell and beyond struggle to recruit enough staff. Can the Secretary of State reassure me that his Department will leave no stone unturned in getting as many people as possible back into the workplace?

The Minister for Employment (Guy Opperman)

I welcome the good news but also accept the challenge. I have visited Bracknell to meet my hon. Friend and am happy to sit down with him and the local jobcentres to ensure we are addressing his constituency’s vacancy issues.
