in unemployment across Burnham-On-Sea area welcomed by MP
has continued to fall in the Burnham-On-Sea area and across Somerset,
according to new figures out this week.
MP James Heappey welcomed the news, saying: "With the total
number of unemployment claimants in the Wells constituency at
just 1.2 per cent, that is half of the national average. This
is firm proof that the Somerset economy remains strong."
claimants in the Wells constituency have fallen 51 per cent between
December 2010 and 2015 and eight per cent 2014-15.
unemployment has also continued to decrease with only 135 claimants
aged 18-24 in December 2015, ten lower than the previous year.
