The Employment Minister is expected to defend the government's work experience scheme on a visit to Cornwall.

Critics call it slave labour.

But Chris Grayling says nobody is forced to do it.

Camborne and Redruth Conservative MP George Eustice is disappointed Burger King is pulling out: "It wasn't slave labour as they said; that was a ludicrous suggestion. These people could experiment for a few days, three or four days, to see whether they liked the job. If they did, then they could committ for a further four weeks, and in that they would have valuable training and work experience which would help them get a job, so it's young people that are the losers really.

"I think it's a great shame that a small number of hard left activists have managed to scare a few companies away from this scheme, because the evidence is incredibly clear that having some experience of work is the first important step to having a full time job."
