I am deeply concerned that unemployment in the constituency continued a year on year rise. Latest figures show that unemployment in July 2019 stood at 1,255.

The total number of unemployed claimants in Delyn constituency in July 2019 was 1,255.

This represents a rate of 3.8% of the economically active population aged 16-64.

The equivalent UK claimant rate was 3.6%. The UK unemployment rate, which includes people not claiming benefits and is estimated from survey data, was 3.9% in April to June 2019. Read more “Unemployment: July 2019”

Labour secured an opposition day debate this week on the rising levels of inequality and poverty in our country and how this is placing a roadblock to social mobility.

I couldn’t help but raise my utter exasperation that at a time when we keep getting told there is no money left by the UK Government, one of the contenders for the job of Prime Minister – Boris Johnson MP – wants to give a tax cut to those earning between £50-£80,000.

At a time when unemployment in Delyn remains above 1,000 people for 9 consecutive months, over-75s are losing their free TV licences and child poverty in some wards is at 30% I believe there are much better uses for this money.
