Number of jobless falls again

SCOTLAND’S unemployment rate has fallen to match the lowest rate in 25 years, the Scottish Government claims.

It fell by 0.6 percentage points over the last quarter to four per cent, equalling the figure for March to May 2008, and the lowest rate since the recession. Unemployment fell by 17,000 over the quarter to 109,000 and decreased by 49,000 over the year. Labour market statistics for February to April 2017, published by the Office for National Statistics, show Scotland’s unemployment rate continues to be the lowest out of the four UK nations and lower than the UK rate of 4.6 per cent.
