Asked about gross domestic product (GDP) figures published this morning, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) reiterated what the Chancellor had said: that today’s figures are an encouraging sign the economy is healing. Asked a follow up question on whether the Prime Minister was concerned about the construction industry, the PMS said there remained a tough economic backdrop, but pointed to the Government’s housing and infrastructure policies which are aimed at boosting this particular industry. Asked about whether there had been disproportionate growth in the service sector, he pointed out there had been growth in manufacturing figures in March. More widely, he said a million and a quarter new private sector jobs had been created since 2010.
