Phil Willis has reacted to the Milburn Report

“I am extremely pleased that Alan Milburn and his panel have recognised the vital role, to both young people and businesses, of interns and internship opportunities.

“This report is a further step along the road towards ensuring that the internship is fully recognised as a vital learning experience. It is also a significant step towards ensuring that access to internships is open to all, regardless of financial background, and I sincerely hope that the recommendations addressing financial support and accommodation for interns will be seriously considered.

“I fully endorse the recommendation that a best practice code for internships be developed, and commend the work of the Parliamentary branch of Unite for recently launching an ‘Interns Agreement’ to establish a common standard of internships in MPs offices. I would encourage all of my parliamentary colleagues to sign up to this agreement in their own offices.”
