Unemployment down by 25 per cent

The first and most important job Ben has is to help every Ipswich person have a secure, sustainable job.

It has been tough going but this year he was able to report that the number of people signing on to Job Seeker’s Allowance in the town was down by 962 since he became the town’s MP- a reduction of over 25 per cent since May 2010.


There is much more to do but Ben will continue to fight for good jobs for every Ipswich person.
