GDP figures released today by the Office for National Statistics provide further evidence that our economic plan is working.

The latest statistics show that in the three months to September the UK economy grew by 0.7%.

Commenting, Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander said:

"Our recovery is now well established and creating jobs in record numbers.

"These GDP figures show the UK economy has good momentum to deal with a less certain global outlook. Our plan is working and we need to stick to it.

"The families and businesses of Britain whose hard work is powering this recovery will judge harshly any Party that threatens to squander this progress.

"Britain can't forget the deficit or believe unfunded promises.

"Being sensible with the nation's money is the bedrock of the Liberal Democrat approach. We will keep a steady hand on the economic tiller because that is the only way to produce the stronger economy and fairer society that Britain needs."
