  3. An eighth person has been arrested over allegations of fraud in connection with welfare-to-work company A4e.

    The 19-year-old woman was detained by appointment at a police station in Berkshire earlier.

    She was questioned on suspicion of conspiracy to commit fraud before being released on bail until July.

    Seven other people arrested over the investigation into A4e’s offices in Slough, Berkshire, are on bail until dates in late May, June and July.

    The Sheffield-based company handles millions of pounds worth of government contracts for welfare-to-work schemes.

  7. The government has ended a contract with welfare-to-work company A4e after deciding that continuing would be “too great a risk”, it has said.

    The firm is currently the subject of two police investigations over allegations of fraud relating to government schemes.

    An eighth employee of the firm was arrested in connection with the police inquiry on Monday.

    Seven other people are on bail until dates in late May, June and July.

    As part of its work, A4e handles government contracts worth millions of pounds for welfare-to-work schemes.

    The police investigation is in relation to a work experience scheme called Mandatory Work Activity, launched by the government in May 2010.

    More than 24,000 people have been through the programme, which involves a four-week placement including maintenance work on houses, renovating furniture or supporting charities.

    The scheme is aimed at getting people into a working routine if they need an additional “push” to find a job.

    A4e started in South Yorkshire more than 20 years ago to provide retraining to large numbers of Sheffield steelworkers who became redundant when the industry started to decline.

    The investigation is in relation to the company’s offices in Slough, Berkshire

  8. BBC article here:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-18070203

    “Ministers end A4e contract for welfare-to-work schemes

    The government has ended a contract with welfare-to-work company A4e after deciding that continuing would be “too great a risk”
    Doesn’t specify which contract or all contracts!

  9. So it’s just the Mandatory Work Activity contract for the South East.
    It’s a stunt by Grayling to deflect attention nationally

    Small beer to the great Leader.
    Very damning comments though.

  11. Some are easily pleased.

    This is but one contract over one office, much more infringments need to be found to really cause a stir. That said im glad it was the MWA contract as it does fit rather nice with the climb down a while back on the placement scheme for the teenagers.
