Yesterday I secured a promise from Iain Duncan Smith, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, that a full Jobcentre Plus service would be kept in Deptford if a suitable building could be found.

I was appalled to learn of the Coalition Government's hypocritical plans to close the Jobcentre Plus on Deptford High Street.
