benefit numbers

whay are we gloating about the reduction in the numbers on the unemployment benefit when well over three times the number of those on the unemployment benefit are on the sickness and invalids benefits?

Nearly 124,000 to be precise. Is it really true that 124,000 people are "temporarily off work because of sickness, injury, pregnancy or disability" or, in the case of the invalids benefit "permanently sick, injured or disabled".

I wonder how many of the "permanently sick, injured or disabled" have got full time jobs so far this year?
