Unemployment down again

Stephen CrabbUNEMPLOYMENT in the Preseli Pembrokeshire region has dropped again, according to figures released by the Office for National Statistics.

Local MP Stephen Crabb has welcomed the news saying: “We are in a much better situation in Preseli Pembrokeshire compared with the same time last year with over two hundred more people in work. Although we have seen just a small fall in unemployment over the last month, the positive trend continues.

This means that as we approach Christmas, which can often be a difficult time financially, there are more local people in work and earning money.

He added: As the economic recovery gains momentum, I hope that more people across the County will be able to get back in to employment benefitting not only themselves but the local businesses that are the backbone of the Pembrokeshire economy.

Figures released by the Office for National Statistics show that the number of unemployed claimants in the Preseli Pembrokeshire constituency is 264 lower than in October 2012 and one lower than in September 2013
