Bridget Phillipson – 2021 Comments on New GDP Figures

The comments made by Bridget Phillipson, the Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, on 11 November 2021.

This morning’s GDP figures confirm that the economic recovery is slowing and risks grinding to a halt.

We need urgent action to keep the economy moving and support households as we head into the winter, as prices rise and as the cost of living crisis continues to escalate.

The Budget showed that the Government is trapping us in a cycle of high taxes and is risking our recovery by not growing our economy.

Labour will tax fairly, spend wisely and, after a decade of faltering growth, we’ll get Britain’s economy firing again with our plan to buy, make and sell more in Britain.
