Employment on the cards at meeting

ISSUES around employment in Boston were discussed at a meeting in the town last night.

Councillors, union leaders and members of the public gathered to share view on unemployment and the impact that a large number of migrant labour has had on the working lives of local Boston people in recent years.

The meeting was part of a series of meetings of the Task and Finish Group looking into the social impact of population change in the borough.

The next meeting, which will centre on education issues in Boston, will take place on April 26.
