Britain Remade responds to January GDP figures

Responding to the latest GDP figures, Sam Richards, CEO of pro-growth campaign group Britain Remade, said:

“We’d all like to have the World Cup every month - but sadly that’s as effective as a long-term solution for the British economy as it is for the nation's mental health. These anaemic growth figures show we need to let Britain get building and fast- new homes, transport links, and sources of clean energy.

If we want to see good-quality, well paid jobs delivered government needs to move fast to remove the hurdles that all too often lead to dither and delay for major infrastructure projects.”
