PM: GDP figures are very, very disappointing

These are very, very disappointing figures. I don't seek to excuse them, I don't seek to try and explain them away.

Let me be absolutely clear: there is no complacency at all in this Government in dealing with what is a very tough situation that, frankly, has just got tougher.

I believe the truth is this: it is very difficult recovering from the deepest recession in living memory accompanied, as it was, by a debt crisis.

– David Cameron
