Business and employment is continuing to thrive in the Calder Valley. We’ve brought the Prime Minister and Cabinet Ministers here to promote and discuss policy with our local businesses. This is having a direct impact: the number of people claiming unemployment benefits in Calder Valley is down by 30% since 2010, and employment is at a record high. This means that more people are in work, contributing to the economy and providing for their family. I will continue to work with Calder Valley businesses to ensure our local economy continues to prosper and work for everyone.
