Anneliese Dodds responds to latest GDP figures

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to the latest GDP figures , said: 

“The UK has already had the worst recession of any major economy and now we’re in danger of a devastating double dip. That’s the cost of this Conservative Government’s incompetence and indecision. 

“Instead of securing our economy, the Chancellor is winding down economic support and hitting families with a triple hammer blow of pay freezes, a cut to universal credit and a hike in council tax.

“Labour’s priorities would be the priorities of the British people: securing our economy, protecting our NHS and rebuilding our country.
