Member of Parliament for Amber Valley


More Encouraging News on the Economy

Today saw the announcement that the JSA in claimant count fell again in November here in Amber Valley. It’s now at 1.9%, lower than the 2.1% announced in October. This means that a further 91 of my constituents are back in work or starting their own businesses.

We also saw the announcement yesterday that the falling costs of fuel have seen a reduction in inflation, which now stands at 1%. Additionally, we saw that wages are picking up – at 1.6% per year excluding bonuses. This means that people are feeling the economic recovery in their own pockets.

None of this could be possible without our long-term economic plan, and we must stick to it to ensure that we continue on the road to a better and brighter future for Amber Valley.
