MP: Vital more done to get local people into work

Chelmsford MP Simon Burns commented on the unemployment figures today - after the number of jobless rose in his constituency - despite unemployment falling in the region overall.

He said:

The latest figures released today show that, for the second month running, there has been a rise in unemployment in Chelmsford.

It is vital that more is done to ensure that local people get into work over the coming months and my thoughts remain with those people who are sadly affected.

– Simon Burns MP
