Economy continues to grow

The very latest figures released today have confirmed that the British economy is continuing to grow providing further evidence that the Conservatives plan for rebuilding our economy is working.

Over the last quarter the economy grew by 0.8% and that means it has grown by 3.1% over the last year. It is only by having a growing economy that we can provide security for families and improve the living standards of hardworking families across Bury, Ramsbottom and Tottington.

Encouragingly, for the first time in a decade all the three main sectors of our economy have grown by at least three per cent over the last year That mean growth in manufacturing, growth in services and growth in construction so this is a broadly based recovery and not one based on just one segment of the economy.
