"With youth unemployment rising considerably under Labour and currently standing at a worryingly high level, the Coalition Government is determined to ensure we don't lose a generation of young people because of the mistakes of this generation.

"We know that school leavers being out of work for a long period of time can have a drastic effect on the rest of their lives. So today's announcement by Nick Clegg will ensure that every young person has the start in life that they deserve. What makes this package unique is that it gets young people into training or lasting employment, ensuring they don't fall behind.

"When money is tight, Liberal Democrats are determined to do the right thing and prioritise the future of our young people. We will make sure those who are willing and able have the opportunities and support they need to make sure no one falls behind."
