Kirby welcomes fall in unemployment in Brighton Kemptown

Simon Kirby, the Conservative MP for Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven, welcomed news that unemployment has fallen in his Brighton Kemptown constituency over the last year.

Figures from the independent House of Commons Library showed the number of unemployed claimants in Brighton, Kemptown constituency in July 2011 was 2,208. This represents a rate of 5.3% of the economically active population aged 16 to 64, the 266th highest of the 650 U.K. constituencies. The number of claimants is 28 lower than in July 2010.

Mr. Kirby said: “I am delighted with this year-on-year fall but there is still a long way to go – especially in relation to young people. The coalition government’s work programme should assist many people who are looking for work and new opportunities are being created regarding apprenticeships for young people.”
