Hain: More people in work
More people are in work and not claiming benefits, the work and pensions secretary Peter Hain has said.

According to Mr Hain, the government has helped more people to get jobs then their predecessors.

"We've actually brought down the numbers on those claiming benefits by a million compared with what we inherited under the Tories where people were just written off," he said to BBC One's The Andrew Marr Show.

Responding to recent reports that half of new jobs go to foreign nationals, he added that there are plenty of British jobs for British people.

Mr Hain also remarked that the government has "created more jobs in Britain than ever before".

A poll by Mandis and Adecco showed that there was a 20 per cent boost on the number of jobs created in September compared to the same month in 2006, with 40,833 positions becoming available.

The health and social care and transport and distribution sectors had a strong month in terms of job creation.
