PMQs: Cameron and Miliband on UK unemployment figures

The prime minister was accused of using the "same script" as he was questioned on unemployment figures by Ed Miliband, who spoke of nearly one million young people out of work.

David Cameron told the House of Commons they were "very disappointing figures" and named the Work Programme, welfare reform and more apprenticeships as part of the plan to get people back to work.

They also traded figures about employment figures for women on the day when UK unemployment rose by 114,000 between June and August to 2.57 million, a 17-year high, according to official figures.
