Unemployment rising in Campbell Park

I was disappointed to learn today that unemployment has risen again in Campbell Park ward. The number of people claiming unemployment benefits rose to 695 in February from 599 the previous month.

Across Milton Keynes, unemployment reached 5,989 in February from 5,475 the previous month.

This is a clear indication that George Osborne’s cuts have failed to deliver an economic recovery. It’s time the Government focused on creating jobs and growth, rather than stifling growth through damaging cuts to public services.
