Economy and manufacturing figures
Asked about the latest manufacturing figures, the PMOS said that, whilst he would not comment on every specific set of figures released, as the Chancellor had said in his interview yesterday, the country faced a challenging economic environment and that there was work to do to rebalance the economy. Since the last election, significant numbers of new private sector jobs had been created and the deficit had been cut by a quarter.
