Ben Wallace MP: Unemployment fall means a brighter future for working people in Wyre & Preston North

This means more people in work, with the security of a good job and a regular pay packet so they can provide for themselves and their families.

 People are getting off benefits and into work across the North West, with 166,670 more people in work since the last Labour Government. Across the UK, there are 2.05 million more people at work than at the end of thirteen years of a Labour Government.

 Mr Wallace said:

 ‘Conservatives are committed to achieving full employment, so everyone who wants to work can have the security of a regular pay-packet. It is the best route out of poverty, and getting more good jobs across the UK means we can renew our country as a place where people who work hard and do the right thing are able to get on.

 ‘It’s excellent news that 362 fewer people are relying on [Jobseeker’s Allowance / Jobseeker’s Allowance and Universal Credit] in the Constituency – that’s more families here with the stability and security of a regular pay packet.

 ‘This is thanks to the hard work and the determination of people here, and the Conservatives’ strong leadership and clear economic plan, which is committed to building a Britain that offers working people security at every stage of their life.’
