Reacting on today's employment figures, Prime Minister David Cameron speaking at Prime Ministers questions said:
"We have to rebalance our economy because the state sector was too big, the private sector was too small.
"What's happened since the election is one million new private sector jobs, which more than makes up for the inevitable loss of jobs in the state sector.
"We've got a huge amount more to do to reform welfare, reform our schools, boost our private sector and Britain can be a winner in the global race."
