More great news re unemployment
16/06/2016 09:03:00

 
 

Yesterday, the independent Office for National Statistics published the latest unemployment figures.

Having fallen by a remarkable 15% in April, unemployment in Croydon Central fell by a further 15% in May. Just 1 in 50 economically active 18-64 year-olds in my constituency are now on Job Seeker’s Allowance.

There are fewer people unemployed in Croydon Central today than at any time in my six and a bit years as an MP. Since David Cameron became Prime Minister, unemployment in our area has fallen by 58%.

The figures for youth unemployment in Croydon Central are even better. It has fallen by 22% in just the last four weeks and since David Cameron became Prime Minister it has fallen by an incredible 74%.

And with the Westfield Hammerson redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre due to get underway in less than a year’s time and major companies and government agencies moving back into Croydon, if we stick with this Government’s long-term economic plan (including voting to stay in the world’s largest single market next week) we have an opportunity of achieving full employment - a job for everyone who wants one.
