Tom Richmond, Senior Research Fellow at Reform, appeared on BBC Radio London to discuss the findings of Reform‘s latest report, The great training robbery: assessing the first year of the apprenticeship levy.

More robust definitions are needed from the government to prevent companies being able to take advantage of loopholes.
