Liberal Democrats on Unemployment

This recovery would not be happening without the Liberal Democrats. Our economy is growing because of the hard work of people and businesses throughout Britain. The Coalition's economic plan is the rock on which our recovery is being built.

30m people in work is another landmark on the long road to recovery.  It’s only been possible because we’re sticking to a sound economic plan and because of the hard work of the British people and of British business.

These figures send out a clear message that we have built the foundations for healthy UK growth and a stronger economy.

We’re seeing record levels of employment, with more women in the labour market and long-term unemployment at its lowest level in four-and-a-half years.

This Government has worked hard to repair and rebalance the economy, helping to create 1.6 million new private sector jobs since the election, strengthening Britain’s economy and building a fairer society.
