The number of people out of work in London has dropped, according to the latest figures released by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).
The number of people in work across London went up by 30,000 between June and August 2013, while in the past year the number of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance has fallen by almost 215,000 in the UK including 30,118 in London.
Liberal Democrat MEP for London Sarah Ludford said:
“The rise in the number of people in work across London and the decline in the number of jobless in London shows that our economy is growing stronger.”
“This is clearly a significant step forward, but we must remain focused on creating even more jobs.”
