Time to appoint a specific Minister for Housing
Governments don't create jobs, but they do create the conditions within which jobs can be created.
The Coalition has approached the jobs crisis in a concerted fashion over the past four years through the implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs.
In 2012, the Government targeted the creation of 100,000 extra jobs by 2016. That target was achieved 21 months early and highlighted the potential of the whole of government approach to the jobs agenda.
