Another Fall in Unemployment Despite Static Growth

Unemployment fell by 14,000 last month to 2.5 million, down 0.1% on the previous quarter to 7.8%. Number of people claiming jobseeker’s allowance fell by 12,500 to 1.54 million. Employment is up by half a million on the year. A nice distraction from the 4G shortfall that makes the Autumn Statement figures even more controversial.
