Unemployment continues to fall in Epping Forest

Eleanor Laing MP has welcomed latest unemployment figures for the Epping Forest constituency which show more than 100 fewer people out of work than a year ago.

The total number of unemployed claimants in the Epping Forest constituency in August this year was 1,753 - some 104 lower than in August last year, and 75 lower than in July this year.

Mrs Laing said: “These figures are to be welcomed but we must not be complacent and there are still far more people out of work than I would like in the Epping Forest constituency.

“I will be able to discuss the issue when I visit staff at the Jobcentre Plus offices in Loughton shortly.”
