Liberal Democrats: Coalition on the right track on unemployment

Liberal Democrats press release

Commenting on the latest unemployment figures released today [Wednesday], Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party Committee on Work and Pensions, Greg Mulholland said:

"The largest recorded fall in unemployment for over a decade is very welcome news. It shows that the Coalition Government is on the right track to get more people into work so that we can leave these difficult times behind us.

"The fall in unemployment was driven by the biggest drop in youth unemployment on record. Liberal Democrats have always been clear that getting young people into work is crucial to build a stronger economy.

"Youth unemployment can be devastating to the long-term career prospects of young people and that is why Liberal Democrats have put in place a £1bn Youth Contract to give young unemployed people a chance to earn or learn."
