Duncan Smith's job claims aren't true

Issue No. 2228

Duncan Smith claims that there are 459,000 jobs available in job centres across Britain. This is not true. Nomis, which supplies official labour market statistics, says that only 383,344 jobs were available at job centres. Only 265,409 of these are full-time.
