Our response to ONS unemployment data, October 2022

Responding to today’s unemployment figures from the ONS, Centre for London Director of Research Claire Harding said:

“We welcome the fact that London is generating jobs again.

But as well as unemployment falling, economic inactivity is rising. Too many Londoners are being forced out of work by illness or caring responsibilities.

The government’s growth plan relies on London’s success. The government needs to support Londoners and London businesses through investment in transport and skills to maintain this progress.”
