GDP Figures

Asked if today’s upward revision was a sign that the economy would do better than expected this year, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) told the assembled press that the Prime Minister thought it was welcome that we had seen an upward revision, but he also knew that there was no room for complacency. The most important thing was that we continued to support the recovery.

Asked whether this increased the confidence inside No10 that the UK would not full back into recession, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister’s view was that we had to continue to support the recovery. There were always challenges in any recovery but this was a promising sign.

Asked if the Prime Minister could see green shoots, the PMS said that this was positive news but the Prime Minister saw this in the context of a recovery that was still in progress.
