PMQs: Cameron and Miliband on unemployment and benefits


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.
