I am delighted by the drop in unemployment and youth unemployment in our area.
The latest jobs figures that show there has been a 46% fall in unemployment in the Dover and Deal since 2010. There are now only 1,226 people claiming out of work benefits in our area. Youth unemployment is now down nearly 60% to 225.
These figures show a steady decline in unemployment in Dover and Deal, which is great news as we strive to build a Britain that works for everyone.
I will continue to fight for hard working people and do all I can to see unemployment continue to fall as we leave the EU and write the next chapter of our island story.
