European Commission is latest international organisation to warn that Government urgently needs plan for jobs and growth – Reeves
30 May 2012
Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, in response to the European Commission’s report on the UK economy, said:
“This is just the latest international organisation to warn that the Conservative-led Government urgently needs a plan for jobs and growth.
“Bringing forward infrastructure investment now would help to boost an economy that’s been pushed into a double-dip recession by this Government’s mistakes. It’s what the IMF called for last week and what Labour has been demanding in its five point jobs plan.
“Without urgent action to get our economy moving again, the Government will cause long-term damage and won’t succeed in getting the deficit down. After this week’s u-turns, and with Britain now in recession, David Cameron and George Osborne need to rethink their failing economic policies.”
