Aled Roberts, Liberal Democrat Assembly Member for North Wales, has welcomed figures released today showing that 617 fewer people in Denbighshire’s two Parliamentary constituencies are claiming Job Seeker’s Allowance compared to a year ago.
This coincides with figures released today showing that Wales’ unemployment rate has dropped by 0.9% over the last three months.
“Today’s figures are excellent news for Denbighshire,” commented Aled Roberts.
“Liberal Democrats in government are working tirelessly to get our economy moving in the right direction. Since taking over the economic mess left by Labour, we are now seeing more people in employment than ever before.
“While these figures are very positive, there can be no room for complacency. There is still a long way to go.
“The Welsh Liberal Democrats will continue to fight for a stronger economy and fairer society, enabling every person to get on in life.”
