Guardian: Unemployment rises at fastest rate since 1990s The number of people drawing unemployment benefit has risen at its sharpest rate since the recession of the early 1990s, figures revealed yesterday. The figures, which provide the latest indication of a softening labour market, came a week ahead of Gordon Brown's 10th and possibly final budget. They provide an uncomfortable backdrop for a chancellor who has made the restoration of full employment a key plank of policy and follow news that economic growth in 2005 came in at its lowest since 1992.
