Press Association

THE UK faces a lost decade of economic "stagnation" because of current growth rates, the TUC has warned. A study by the union body showed that rising population has been the driving force behind recent economic growth. But GDP income per head is lower than when the Government took office in 2010 and will not return to pre-recession level until 2018, it warned.
