Unemployment

Put that Yvette Cooper had said that she expected unemployment to go up next year and what reassurance could the Prime Minister give to people coming up to Christmas, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister’s view was that investment that had been made in schemes such as the Future Jobs Fund and providing advisors in Job Centre Plus centres was all geared up to get people back into work. Some of the incentives announced yesterday in the White Paper would help young people in particular back in to work as well as those who had been out of work for longer than six months.

Asked how worried people should be, the PMS said that the figures this morning were encouraging, but we would not be complacent; we needed to go for growth and we needed to get people in to work and that was exactly what the Prime Minister was doing. This was one of the key drivers behind the Chancellor’s Pre-Budget Report.

Asked if there was a sense that the recession was now over, the PMS said that the figures were encouraging but we wouldn’t be complacent. The Chancellor had said that he was hoping we would see growth in the economy towards the end of the year.
