The Conservative Party candidate for Ealing and Acton has welcomed figures showing 1,000 fewer people in the constituency claiming Jobseeker's Allowance, compared to 2010.
Angie Bray is pleased with the 37% drop, and with youth unemployment across Ealing now down nearly 70% on its peak.
Across the borough as a whole, joblessness is down 45.6% – since its peak under Labour, whilst youth unemployment is now down by 67.3% (more than two thirds).
Jobs are being created in Ealing and Acton by businesses like Morrisons in Ealing Broadway, which opened in January creating 185 new positions (of which 147 went to those previously unemployed), as well as by smaller and medium-sized businesses.
People are getting off benefits and into work across London, with 527,000 more people in work across the city since the last election, whilst the UK as a whole has seen 1,000 jobs created every day since the last election, say Conservatives.
Ms Bray said: "It’s excellent news that more than 1,000 fewer people are relying on Jobseeker’s Allowance in Ealing and Acton – 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."
Figures are from the ONS.
