Commenting on today’s GDP figures, the Deputy Prime Minister said:

Two consecutive years of growth shows that our economy is getting stronger.

Back in 2010 the economy was on its knees but decisive action by the coalition government to fix the public finances has put Britain firmly back on the road to recovery.

We have helped stimulate growth in industries across the country while at the same time cutting taxes for millions of low and middle earners.

But there is still a lot more work to do, which is why we need to continue building a stronger economy and doing so fairly.
