Sir: While in opposition the Labour Party was forever criticising the government for allegedly manipulating the unemployment figures through the means used to compute the unemployment total. When is the new government going to institute what they see as the true method of recording unemployment? Perhaps now the Labour Party is in power and unemployment has fallen to a 17-year low they are prepared to let the matter rest.
