It is great to see unemployment and youth unemployment continuing to fall in Dover and Deal.
Figures released by the ONS show that the number of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance now stands at 1,157. This demonstrates a fall of 45% since May 2010 and 19% since this time last year.
Youth unemployment paints a similar picture, with the number of young claimants down to 275 – a 54% drop since Labour were in office.
More people in Dover and Deal are reaping the benefits of a regular pay packet and it is great to see hardworking families enjoy this security.
As the Labour Party hurtles from chaos to calamity, becoming ever more extreme, the Conservatives remain resolutely focused on sound management of our economy and achieving full employment and opportunity for all.
