Productivity is in freefall under this do-nothing Government – McDonnell

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to figures showing that productivity has decreased for a third consecutive quarter compared with the previous year, said:

“Productivity is in freefall under this do-nothing Government.

“With business investment also falling and wages still lower than a decade ago, we have an economy in a state of neglect, damaged by years of Tory mismanagement.

“This Government is falling apart, but it must not bring the economy down with it.”
