The Prime Minister has told Cornwall the cuts are working.

Speaking on a visit to small businesses near Wadebridge, David Cameron said the number of people out of work in the Duchy has fallen since he took power.

He has been to Kernow Chocolate and the St Eval Candle Company to hear how government grants are helping them expand.

The PM also took questions on NHS funding and mobile not-spots during one of his first trips of the General Election year.

He said: "Across Cornwall as a whole, there are 132 thousand more people in work than when I became Prime Minister. Unemployment is down by 27 thousand. Actually in the last year alone the claimant count, the number of people claiming unemployment benefit in Cornwall has fallen by around 40%

"We've made this a business friendly country. We've cut the taxes that small businesses pay, we've cut the National Insurance that they have to pay, we've tried to help with their rates bills, tried to help with things like energy bills - that's going to be the key to economic success; sticking with this long-term plan that's delivering these extra jobs."
