I am appalled by new figures out today showing that unemployment in the constituency has risen for yet another consecutive month. The total number of unemployed claimants in Delyn in August 2018 was 1,035.

This represents a rate of 3.2% of the economically active population aged 16-64.

The equivalent UK claimant rate was 2.9%. The UK unemployment rate, which includes people not claiming benefits and is estimated from survey data, was 4.0% in May to July 2018.

The number of claimants in Delyn constituency is 270 higher than August 2017 and 30 higher than July 2018.

There were 225 claimants aged 18-24 in August 2018, 40 higher than August 2017. Read more “Unemployment: August 2018”
