Govt must continue to help businesses and families

May 14, 2020 5:20 PM

Sir Ed Davey MPResponding to figures released by the OBR which show the economy could shrink by up to 35% this quarter, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:

"Families across the country are facing great hardship with millions furloughed and on universal credit.

"The Government must continue to support businesses and families through this crisis. It must not add to their difficulties by freezing pay for the many public sector workers that have been on the frontline of tackling this pandemic.

"There must be no austerity after the coronavirus crisis and we must instead build a fairer greener economy for the future."
