Weak growth and extreme cuts a dangerous combination, says TUC

28 May 2015

Commenting on the latest release today (Thursday) from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on GDP figures, which confirms that the slowest recovery in modern history is slowing down again, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“With growth so weak, the Chancellor’s plans to hit the economy with extreme cuts could plunge it into deeper trouble.

“The government must think again because its economic plan is failing. The economy urgently needs a new plan for growth, based on the strong foundation of investment in infrastructure and good jobs with decent pay.”
