Mark welcomes new economic figures

Local MP Mark Lancaster has welcomed the economic figures which were announced today.

This morning, the Office for National Statistics announced that UK economic output has risen by 0.8% between July and September according to the official GDP figures.

With unemployment in Milton Keynes at low levels, the September figures had it at 2.8%, the news that UK GDP has experienced its fastest growth for three years was welcomed by the local MP.

Mark said, 'These figures are promising and I am pleased to see that the economy has grown by 0.8% this quarter. There is still more work to be done and we cannot be complacent, but with major inward investment locally and confidence returning, Milton Keynes continues to be seen by many as the place to do business and I will do all I can to ensure that this is the case.
