UK on track to be the fastest growing G7 economy

GDP figures released today (Tuesday 27 January) shows that Britain's economy is growing.

Quarterly growth of 0.5 per cent puts the UK in pole position to be the fastest growing economy in 2015.

Liberal Democrats have anchored economic policy in the centre ground.

In government we have driven through a host of Lib dem inspired measures including income tax cuts for millions of working people, cutting the deficit fairly, boosting apprenticeships and investing in regional and local projects to rebalance the economy.

Today's figures represent solid progress, especially with many of our key markets still suffering from economic problems.

With the country on the right track, a lurch to the right with the Tories or to the left with Labour has never posed a greater danger to our economic recovery.
