Government cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith discussed job opportunities with a group of Camden young people during a visit to a youth project in Swiss Cottage today.

The former Conservative Party leader, who is now secretary of state for work and pensions in David Cameron’s government, attended The Winch, in Winchester Road, Swiss Cottage, this morning to find out about the work carried out by the project in the community.

He was welcomed on the visit by Camden Conservatives leader Cllr Claire Louise-Leyland and Cllr Simon Marcus, Tory parliamentary candidate for Hampstead and Kilburn.

Mr Duncan Smith met The Winch’s chief executive Paul Perkins, as well as a number of youth workers and young people.

He spoke about the grants and programmes on offer to young people looking to set up a business or find work through Jobcentre Plus.
