Keighley MP welcomes drop in number of unemployed
1:56pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
A drop in jobless figures locally has been welcomed by Keighley MP Kris Hopkins.
He said the number of unemployed people in the constituency, which also includes Ilkley, fell last month to 2,105 – 98 fewer than in August and 349 down on a year ago.
“I am very pleased for all those individuals in Keighley and Ilkley who found work in the past month,” he said.
“There are now more people in employment across the country than ever before, driven by a growth in full-time, permanent jobs.
“There is no room for complacency, and it is important we work to maintain the downward trend in unemployment as the economy continues to recover.”
