Fall in unemployment figures across Burnham area welcomed
MP has this week welcomed new figures that show unemployment has
fallen in our area.
new figures show local jobless rates have fallen to their lowest
levels for the past couple of years.
figures released this week show more than 200 people have found
employment in the constituency over the past month, bringing claimant
figures down to 2.3% of the total population.
Tessa Munt, pictured, said: "I am delighted to see more people
in my patch able to get back to work the figures are certainly
encouraging and we should take heart from this."
this should not lead to complacency; youth unemployment is still
worryingly high and I will continue to do all I can to support
local young people here as their MP to improve the situation."
