Chris Grayling: Unemployment figures show scale of challenge

Chris Grayling, employment minister, warns that unemployment figures show the scale of the task ahead for the government:

"Today's figures underline the scale of the challenge that we face particularly given slower growth across Europe and North America.

"Unemployment remains lower than it was six months ago but clearly we must continue to focus our efforts on supporting business growth and ensure that people who do lose their jobs have the best possible support to get back into employment."
