John McDonnell comment on National Institute of Economic and Social Research findings

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) findings that it would take more than a decade to deliver Boris Johnson’s election pledge to level up the economy, said:

“This report clearly demonstrates that after a decade of decline under the Conservatives we are now being offered a decade of disappointment.

“All the Johnson hype and election promises are looking pretty faded in the cold light of day.”
