Growth implementation

When questioned on which departments were challenged during Cabinet, the PMS made clear these issues relate to all departments. The Prime Minister had said that he wants to see every department prioritising growth. The PMS said there were some areas where things were progressing well and others where the Government was doing new things that take a bit longer. The purpose of these discussions was to hold departments to account and keep up the pressure.

When asked if Heathrow expansion was discussed as part of the growth agenda, the PMS said that it hadn’t and referred people to the ongoing commission, led by Howard Davies, which is actively looking at this issue.

When questioned about the growth forecast, the PMS referred to the upcoming autumn statement next week.
