UK GDP slows to 0.3% – McDonnell responds
John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to figures showing that UK GDP slowed to 0.3% in the three months to May, said:
“In the face of a do-nothing Government and potential Tory prime ministers making reckless promises, growth continues to slow.
“This is what nine years of Tory governments will be remembered for: brutal austerity, insecure work and low pay, and incompetent economic management.
“More than ever it’s time for a general election and a Labour Government, which will invest to grow our economy and deliver real transformation in the lives of people.”
