There has been a jobs revolution in Dover since 2010. I'm delighted with the latest figures which show big drops in overall unemployment and youth unemployment.
The number of people out of work in Dover and Deal has fallen 43% since 2010 to 1,267. Meanwhile youth unemployment has plunged by a whopping 58% to 270.
I'm passionate about getting people back into work. That's why it's vital we keep creating apprenticeships for our young people and give them the best opportunities in life.
We need to build a Britain that works for the people of Dover and Deal. That means more investment in the towns and regions – not for the benefit of London's jet-set elite.
