Nigel Mills MP has welcomed the announcement that the economy has grown and predictions the UK will be one of the fastest-growing economies this year.
Amber Valley Tory MP Mr Mills said: “These aren’t just abstract numbers and predictions – they mean more jobs and security for families and businesses here in Amber Valley.
“In fact, earlier this month, we saw the announce that unemployment continues to fall here. June’s figures are at 2.5%, down from 2.7% in May and 2.9% in April.
“This news hasn’t just happened by accident. It’s the result of the realistic assessments that the Government has taken over the past four years. This is also the product of hard work by British people; in Amber Valley, we have many manufacturing businesses that export to other nations, and this announcement showed growth of 0.4% in this sector.
“But the job isn’t yet complete. We must continue to ensure that we tackle the deficit – which is now down by more than a third – so that we can secure a brighter future.”
