EMBARGO: Immediate release

Responding to the latest labour market figures showing a rise in unemployment, Liberal Democrat Treasury spokesperson Sarah Olney MP said: 

"After years of economic chaos, these are concerning figures. 

"The Conservative government has played economic whack-a-mole for too long, unable to grow the economy, and now too many face the prospect of losing their job.

"The public has lost all faith in the Conservative party to manage the British economy. Our economy desperately needs a General Election."
