Marlyn Glen , the North East Scotland MSP revealed today that the Future Jobs Fund which is being scrapped by the Conservative-Liberal Coalition Government had been supporting 84 jobs in Angus, through Angus Council.

Ms. Glen condemned the decision to scrap the scheme, describing it as,

" the millionaire Coalition ending a job scheme regarded by the TUC as the most progressive employment programme for thirty years .

She said,

"What young adults want is a job and not just work experience.

"They are the most vulnerable casualties of tough economic times.
