Rachel Reeves comments on GDP figures

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, commenting on today’s GDP figures, said:

“After overseeing the worst economic crisis of any G7 country, the Conservatives have done nothing to tackle the insecurity in our economy.

“Businesses remain uncertain about debt, people are worried about rising inflation, the misjudged cut to Universal Credit is looming and the increasing cost of living is making it more difficult for families to get by.

“Our recovery should be built on secure, well paid jobs, thriving industries, strong public services, support for communities across the country and a sustainable future. The Conservatives have failed to make that happen.”
