Unemployment down

East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson has welcomed the latest drop in unemployment

In June 2014 there were 576 unemployed people in East Dunbartonshire, a fall of 31 from the previous month.

This means just 1.4 per cent of people were claiming Job Seeker’s Allowance.

Ms Swinson said: “Once again it is fantastic to see a significant drop in local unemployment, this time to its lowest level for over six years.”
