Liz questions Secretary of State on latest employment figures

Long-awaited figures from the Office for National Statistics were published today, with our employment rate every lower than previously thought and at least 200,000 more people out of work due to long-term sickness (now 2.8 million people).

In the House of Commons, I questioned the Secretary of State on the figures and how much his Government’s failure is costing taxpayers every single year.

I then called on him to adopt Labour’s plan to cut waits, roll out breakfast clubs, overhaul jobcentres and get Britain working again.
