WEST Midlands Tourism bosses have welcomed a drop in unemployment.

Unemployment in the region has fallen to 7.7 per cent in the quarter from April to June, down from 7.8 per cent in the previous three months, bringing the total number of unemployed to 210,000.

Tim Pile, president of Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, said: “This confirms the Chamber’s own research, which showed that 65 per cent of firms sought to take on staff in Q2 2014.

“The ever-expanding tourist economy across the region will be pivotal in bringing more people into employment.”
