Member of Parliament for Erewash, Jessica Lee, has said she is ‘doubly delighted’ with the news that unemployment in her constituency is down and that average pay packet increases have beaten the rate of inflation.

Recent statistics reveal that the number of people out of work is 570 lower than in October 2013 and 29 lower than in September 2014.

However, Ms Lee is not prepared to relax her campaign for increased employment just yet.

She said: “There is always more to do.

“This is really good news and definitely a step in the right direction for the people of Erewash.”
