Lone parents on JSA rise by 6.5% in one month.

As predicted, the latest JSA figures for lone parents buck the general downward trend, with an increase of 7,500 claiming JSA in just one month. Total now 122,100.

This is the largest rise for over 18 months. It is concentrated in those with youngest children aged between 5 and 6. This is as a result of the changes to benefits that move parents off income support earlier.
