Leo welcomes all-time high employment figures

Leo said: "The number of people in work is at an all-time high of 32.53m, with nearly 3.5m more people in work now than when the Conservatives came into office in 2010. More people are in employment than ever before. Across Aldershot, Farnborough, Blackwater and Hawley, unemployment is down two thirds since 2010 - now just 1% of the economically active population aged 16-64.

I therefore asked the Minister for Employment, Alok Sharma MP, how many employment records the Government had broken since 2015. You can read my contribution in the House of Commons, and the Minister's reply, here in Hansard."
