Sir Torquil Norman on community national service for jobless

Sir Torquil Norman, the arts philanthropist who also invented the Big Yellow Tea Pot toy for children, makes the case for young unemployed people to take part in "community national service".

The founder and chairman of the Roundhouse Trust in Camden, north London, suggests "disaffected young people" could help in hospitals, schools, clearing rubbish or working with the elderly to end their dependency on welfare.

Each week, the Daily Politics offers a platform to a famous person to make a film with their views on a subject before debating their ideas in the studio.
