Unemployment in Wales fell by 6,000 in the three months to May, official figures have revealed.
The quarterly Labour Market Statistics, from the Office for National Statistics, show the number of people who are out of work stands at 96,000 with the rate of unemployment remaining at 6.6% – better than Scotland, Northern Ireland, London and other parts of the country.
Figures for the UK stand at 2.12 million not working.
New Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb welcomed the latest figures.
He said: “The figures show that there is still more work to be done, so it is essential that we stick to our long-term economic plan which is bearing real fruit now for Wales.
“As the new Welsh Secretary I am clear that I want every part of Wales to share in this economic recovery.”
