WE are currently going through a jobs miracle.

Unemployment has fallen to its lowest rate since the 1970s and job opportunities are rocketing, providing better opportunities for us, school leavers and the next generation.

When we voted to leave the European Union in 2016, the establishment predicted major job losses and economic disaster.

The reality we are living in is much different.

There has been a significant reduction in zero-hours contracts, wages are rising higher than inflation meaning that more people have more money in their pockets and more people have the security of a permanent job.

With more people in employment, more people are able to pay taxes and less people are reliant upon the welfare system, reducing financial demands on the state.

This economic boost has enabled the Government to commit to spending an extra £20 billion on our NHS by 2023/24.

We are also continuing to deliver one of the best education systems in the world for our children and young people.

Looking ahead as our economy continues to strengthen, more money can also be spent on developing the sectors that will create the jobs of the future.

The Conservative government is also committed to giving a major boost to the research and development sector.

This investment will help lead the UK into the forefront of world research, will provide a major boost for our universities and will also secure more jobs in this exciting industry for future generations.

We have also seen investment in our manufacturing sector which is why we are now a net exporter of cars for the first time since the 1970s.

The Liverpool2 project for instance is a £400 million investment to create a new freight terminal at the Port of Liverpool, which will enable the largest cargo ships to call directly in the heart of the North West.

This investment will be a major advantage for our future as a major world trade player.

By contrast, the promise of the EU is for ongoing economic success and prosperity but they are clearly failing.

The French unemployment rate is over double that of the UK and 33 per cent of Italy’s young people are out of work.

Whereas, Britain has the third lowest unemployment rate in the EU at just four per cent and our youth unemployment has nearly halved since 2010.

As we draw ever closer to our exit from the European Union, I believe that we have a great future to look forward to.

We are backing job creation, spending on our vital public services and investing in sectors that will provide the secure jobs that we want to see for us now and for our future generations.
