A committee of MPs has added to the widespread criticism of the government's Work Programme, describing it as "extremely poor".

The Public Accounts Committee (PAC), responsible for ensuring the government gets value for its spending, reported that the Work Programme was currently getting only 3.6% of clients into sustained work, far below the target set by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) of 11.9%.
