iPhone : Government had to step up to help the economy through this. That’s what Governments are for. But there is still a duty to target the support where it will help most and to use taxpayers’ money wisely. From last night’s debate.

iPhone : The economy is over 24% smaller today than it was in February. A small return to growth in May is welcome, but the challenge ahead is immense.

The key to recovery is making people feel safe to go out again. They dont just need incentives, they need confidence.

iPhone : This Office for Budget Responsibility analysis is very worrying. Unless the government takes urgent action now, we risk a tsunami of job losses down the line.

iPhone : Make no mistake, it is the Tory government who are responsible for the scrapping of the free TV licence for over 75s. As I said last year, government cant play pass the parcel with social policy. The sheer brazenness of it is something to behold even for the Tories. #SwitchedOff

iPhone : Theres nothing progressive about handing over cash to firms that dont need it.

That money could be delivering support to businesses and workers who do.

iPhone : Fear is a big economic factor in the recovery. The health response and the economic response must go together. twitter.com/anneliesedodds…

iPhone : Today I’ve written to the head of HM Revenue & Customs about his decision to require a ministerial direction before implementing the Job Retention Bonus.

Given the huge amount of public money involved we need to know if public spending on this scale is achieving value for money.
