Taunton Deane's Conservative Prospective MP Rebecca Pow has welcomed new statistics that show the number of people in work in the South West has increased by 128,000 since the last General Election – meaning more families in Taunton Deane have the security of a pay packet at the end of the month.
Rebecca Pow said:
“It is great news that there are 128,000 more people in work in the South West since 2010. That means 128,000 more hardworking people bringing home a regular pay packet, giving them and their family more financial security for the future.
“There is still more to do, but these figures show that the Conservatives’ long-term economic plan is working. We need to stick to the plan, which is getting people off benefits and into work and delivering a more secure future for people in Taunton Deane who want to work hard and get on in life.”
