Shadow Chancellor Alan Johnson MP responding to the latest GDP figures said:

"Today's figures show that growth has slowed in third quarter of this year. 

“They also show that momentum remains from Labour's support for the economy - especially the construction sector. 

“The risk going forward is that the Government has a plan to cut one million jobs, but no plan to support the private sector in replacing them. 

“Yes the deficit needs to be reduced - but it needs to be at a pace that the private sector can manage."
