Anneliese Dodds responds to latest GDP figures

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on GDP figures for October released today, said:

“Today’s data shows that even before the second national lockdown, growth was grinding to a halt. The UK has had the sharpest recession of any G7 economy and is on course for the slowest recovery.

“This is down to the Government’s irresponsible choices. Its failure to fix test, trace and isolate and chopping and changing over economic support has led to unnecessary job losses and businesses going to the wall.

“The Chancellor must now act responsibly to get us through the spring with effective, targeted support for businesses and individuals right across the country.”
