Amber Valley MP Nigel Mills has welcomed the announcement that unemployment has continued to fall.

Latest national figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) reported the annual fall in unemployment had brought the rate down to 6.6 per cent, with a record rise of 345,000 in those gaining jobs – with most being full-time positions.

Welcoming the drop in statistics, Mr Mills said: “I’m delighted to say that unemployment is continuing to fall in my constituency. After the success of my second Amber Valley Jobs Fair in March, we saw it fall in April to 2.9 per cent, and I’m pleased to say that May’s figures have shown a further fall – to 2.7 per cent.
