Since 2010, the number of posts in the parks and countryside department has fallen from 192 to 143.. i know for a fact leeds city council is using people on mandatory work activity were people work for 4 weeks for 30 hours a week for their jobseekers allowance, im soon to be one of them. so leeds city council why not re employ the guys you got rid of in the first place? could it be mandatory work activity is the much cheaper option?
