Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s shadow work and pensions secretary, has responded to wages rising above the rate of inflation this morning’s by saying:

"Working people are now over £1600 a year worse off than when David Cameron came to office, most people are not feeling any recovery and the link between the wealth of the nation and family finances remains broken".
