East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson has welcomed figures showing local unemployment has dropped to its lowest level for six years.

Across East Dunbartonshire last year there was a fall in 329 people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance, with the number of people out of work now lower than before the financial crisis.

Ms Swinson said: “We are seeing hugely positive figures for unemployment right across the county again. It’s a sign that the UK economy is on the road to recovery.”
