John McDonnell responds to ONS analysis on manufacturing sector performance

John McDonnell MP, Shadow Chancellor, responding to analysis by the ONS showing the manufacturing sector is still smaller than it was before 2008, said:

“These figures show that the Tories have utterly failed over nine long years to provide a vision, or meaningful support, for our manufacturing sector.

“And now their Brexit bungling is leading to manufacturers cutting jobs and leaving the UK.

“A Labour Government will establish a National Investment Bank, a National Transformation Fund, and an ambitious industrial strategy to rebuild our economy.”
