/ One Year On From Coalition's First Budget
29 Jun 2011
It is a year since the Coalition Government’s first Budget. In his statement the Chancellor argued that we would all have to tighten our belts for the rocky road ahead. Unfortunately, this has resulted in major job losses and an increase in people on Jobseeker's Allowance.
Figures from the Office of National Statistics show that from June 2010 to May 2011 the number of people chasing each job vacancy in the Rother Valley has jumped from 6.6 per person to 10.7. This is a very worrying trend.
