Office for National Statistics:
The unemployment rate for the three months to April 2011 was 7.7 per cent of the economically active population, down 0.3 on the quarter. The total number of unemployed people fell by 88,000 over the quarter to reach 2.43 million. This is the largest quarterly fall in unemployment since the three months to August 2000.
At least this is something heading in the right direction.
I should add that employment also increased by 80,000.
