Ed Davey and Wendy TaylorThe Bank of England has revised down the UK's growth prospects. Ed Davey, Liberal Democrats Shadow Chancellor said:

"The Conservatives have been desperate to hide how economically damaging their Brexit deal would be, but this Bank of England report spills the beans.

"Boris Johnson's Brexit would mean lower growth, less investment and less tax revenue to the Treasury. It is yet more proof that Boris Johnson puts party interest ahead of national interest and is happy to make us all worse off.

"A Liberal Democrats government will stop Brexit and boost growth, generating a £50 billion Remain Bonus. Liberal Democrats will build a brighter future, investing in our children's education and boosting our public services for the future."
