MP Jonathan Reynolds has written a short guide to the economy – entitled ‘jobs, growth and the deficit’ – after being contacted by residents who wanted to know more.
While out in the Stalybridge and Hyde constituency, Mr Reynolds is asked about the economy more than anything else.
So – in response to their residents questions and concerns – Mr Reynolds has drafted his own 12-page guide, entitled ‘Jobs, Growth and the Deficit’, designed to explain his own views and to help residents understand the background issues.
Mr Reynolds said: “Whether residents want to talk about rising unemployment, the price of their weekly shop or Government spending cuts, they know their concerns are rooted in the economy.
“But all too often residents then tell me frankly that politicians and commentators should be clearer about what they mean - and set out the facts so they can judge for themselves.
“That’s why I have drafted this short guide – that not only aims to outline my views but to help residents to understand some of the issues involved.
“Of course this won’t answer everyone’s questions or suddenly make anyone an expert in the economy, but I hope this will be the start of an on-going discussion.”
As well as making the guide available to constituents, Mr Reynolds is also looking at the possibility of an event that would enable constituents to explore issues associated with the economy, growth jobs and the deficit.
