Conflicting message from UK jobless figures

Text size Aa Aa

Mixed jobs news in the UK. The numbers of Britons claiming unemployment benefit fell by nearly 33,000 in March, that was three times more than economists had predicted.

However over a longer period – the three months to February – the wider International Labour Organisation measurement showed the number of people without a job using rose by 43,000.

That took the UK jobless rate up to eight percent of the working population.
