East Worthing and Shoreham MP Tim Loughton has welcomed a further fall in unemployment.
Across the constituency the number of people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance and Universal Credit while not in employment has dropped by 879, a 59 per cent per cent decrease, since 2010.
Mr Loughton said: “These figures are good news for families in East Worthing and Shoreham this Christmas.
“With employment at a record high – driven by an increase in full-time work – and wages continuing to grow above inflation, our plan for a higher-employment, higher-wage economy is working.
“We can see that here in East Worthing and Shoreham with new jobs being created by great local businesses.”
