Major milestone in our economic plan means a brighter future for families in Great Yarmouth

New figures show that the economy grew by 0.8 per cent in Q2 2014, up 3.1 per cent on the same period last year.

This continuing growth means there are more businesses, creating more jobs, so that more families can have the security of a regular pay packet and the peace of mind for the future that brings.

Thanks to the hard work of people in Great Yarmouth and across Britain the economy is now above its pre-crisis peak – a major milestone in the Conservatives’ long-term economic plan. It means more businesses, creating more jobs, so families can look forward to a brighter, more secure future.

But there is still a long way to go. The Great Recession was one of the deepest of any major economy and cost Britain six years, hitting people in Great Yarmouth hard.

Now we owe it to hardworking taxpayers not to repeat the mistakes of the past and instead to stick with the plan that is delivering economic security and a brighter future for all.
