7:00am Wednesday 30th October 2013 in Local news
A drop in jobless figures locally has been welcomed by Ilkley MP Kris Hopkins.
They show the number of unemployed people in his constituency, which also includes Keighley, fell last month to 2,105 – 98 fewer than in August and 349 down on a year ago. “I am very pleased for all those in Keighley and Ilkley who found work in the last month,” he said.
“It is important we work to maintain the downward trend in unemployment as the economy continues to recover.”
