Neath MP Peter Hain has condemned the Westminster Governments’ economic policy as ‘failing local people’ as latest unemployment figures show an increase. Despite UK unemployment figures falling unemployment in the Neath constituency has risen for the second month to 1589.
Commenting on the figures Mr Hain said, ‘There is no end to the misery in sight. Unemployment figures are moving in the wrong direction and demonstrating the economic plan of this Tory led Government, supported by the Lib Dems, is failing drastically. With nearly eighty percent of the cuts still to come the situation is going to get much much worse.
‘Behind all the statistics there are real stories of families struggling to make ends meet or of a youngster desperately trying to get into the world of work and being told they don’t have the experience. Sadly a situation faced by too many of our youngsters who are left demoralised and frustrated as they suffer for the mistakes of the bankers and the inept policy of this Tory-Lib Dem government to invest in jobs and growth and get people back into work.”
