Latest GDP figures

On Friday, the latest GDP figures were released – showcasing the challenges ahead and reaffirming our commitment to build back better.

  • Today’s figures highlight the impact the pandemic continued to have on our economy at the start of the year as we tackled the new variant of the virus - and this is a cause of concern for many people.
     
  • But we also have reasons to be hopeful - the government has set out a clear roadmap out of the pandemic, the NHS has vaccinated over 23 million people and the Budget last week set out a three part plan to protect the jobs and livelihoods of the British people.
     
  • Conservatives will continue to protect jobs and businesses as long as this crisis lasts, we will be honest with people and put the public finances on a more sustainable path, and we will begin the work of building our future economy.
