Bloomberg UK Politics: Jobs & Labour's Energy Pledge
Jamie Driscoll, Labour Mayor of North of Tyne, says that his party's plan to cap energy prices this winter must be cost-neutral, and is 'not about increasing government borrowing'. He joins Bloomberg's Yuan Potts and Stephen Carroll to discuss investment in renewable energy, the summer of strikes and makes a bid for Newcastle to host Eurovision. Also in the show: we break down the latest UK jobs figures with our Senior UK Economist Dan Hanson and political reporter Joe Mayes, and hear from how employers and workers are adapting to the current market with Chris Gray, Managing Director of recruitment company Manpower UK.
