So people scoff at the Tory's unemployment levels and play the 0 hour contract card to undermine their claims - assuming Labour or the Lib Dems get into power and maintain 0 hour contracts does that mean that their unemployment levels can also be dismissed as invalid?

Genuine question, not baiting.

Yes. Employment numbers should no include 0 hour contracts, no matter who is in power.

I might be wrong, but I think scrapping ZHCs is Labour party policy.

I think the reporting employment numbers issue is a massive problem. At the moment anyone working over an hour a week is counted as employed. Clearly you can't live off at an hours minimum wage a week.

I think we should come up with another metric. Like percentage of people earning over 250 a week over the age of 18 and under 65 and not in full time education.

There was plenty of scoffing at Labour’s figures last time they were in power. Lots of scoffing about the amount of people on disability benefits etc.

Zero hour contracts are great for some people and are awful for other people. Whatever party you support though, it can’t really be denied that they make the unemployment figures look much better than they actually are.

No sound as Commons wasn't formally in session at that point.
