John Denham MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Innovation and Skills Secretary, commenting on the Government's failure to publish a growth White Paper and news today that there will instead be a 'review', said:

"Last week the Government dropped the much heralded ‘growth’ White Paper because they said they had nothing to put in it. Today we're told the Government will try to paper over this failure by putting a talking shop in its place. This just confirms what we already knew - this Government has no plan for growth."
