Employment, wages & prices: Tighter eligib'ty for unemployment bens

In mid-July the government announced that in order to continue receiving unemployment benefits the unemployed would be required to keep a diary of their efforts to find work (known as a Jobseeker Diary) and to approach more than two employers per week for work. The Jobseeker Diary must be available for random checks and is to be reviewed by social security officers every 12 weeks.
