Treasury: IMF forecast shows UK will grow more strongly than eurozone next year

A spokesman for the Treasury puts a positive spin on the IMF growth forecast, claiming the government's deficit reduction plan is considered 'appropriate':

"It is welcome that the IMF have forecast that the UK will grow more strongly than Germany, France and the eurozone next year.

"But it is clear that the UK is not immune to what is going on in our biggest export markets, with every major economy seeing lower forecasts for growth this year and next.

"The government remains committed to implementing the deficit reduction plan which has delivered stability, a policy stance that Christine Lagarde described as 'appropriate' earlier this month."
