PMQs: Cameron and Miliband on unemployment and benefits
12 December 2012 Last updated at 13:08 GMT
The prime minister said long-term unemployment remained "stubbornly high", despite a fall of 82,000 in the overall jobless figures released on Wednesday.
David Cameron reminded Ed Miliband of a previous quote claiming unemployment "would get worse, not better" and called him to withdraw the comment.
He said the Conservative Party was for "people who work - his is the party for unlimited welfare."
But Ed Miliband said more than 60% of those affected by benefit changes were in work.
