Douglas Alexander MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, commenting on today’s unemployment figures, said:

“We welcome any fall in unemployment, but with the Government planning 490,000 fewer jobs in the public sector and worrying signs in the global economy we’re not out of the woods yet.  It’s also worrying that the number of vacancies is falling in our economy at a time when there are five unemployed people searching for every job.”
