I am really pleased that the latest jobs figures show a 41% fall in unemployment in Dover and Deal since 2010. There are now only 1,316 people claiming out of work benefits. Youth unemployment is also down 47% since 2010, with only 310 youth claimants.
These figures show that our plan is working to get more people back into work. We need to build a Britain that works for everyone with more investment in jobs in towns like Dover and Deal, and more apprenticeships and training for our young people to help them get on in the world of work.
