Jonathan Reynolds responds to the latest ONS Labour market statistics

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to the latest ONS Labour market statistics said:

“Long term unemployment remains persistent and the Government’s Plan for Jobs has done nothing to alleviate supply shortages or prepare for the future.

“Families and businesses are facing an energy crisis, shortages and price rises because of this Government’s poor decisions and lack of planning. And now working people are being hammered by tax hikes and cuts to Universal Credit.

“Our country faces a difficult winter and people need a government on their side, not the complacency and chaos of the Conservatives.”
