Call You and Yours: We're out of recession, but how does it feel for you?

Duration:
55 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 30 October 2012

Last week we had some good news. The double-dip recession was officially declared over by the Office for National Statistics. David Cameron said that the good news will keep on coming.

However critics say living standards are falling and Living Wage research by KPMG has revealed that nearly 5million workers in the UK are not earning enough to maintain a decent standard of living.

On Call You & Yours, we're trying to assess the state of the economy via your experiences. What are the pressures facing your household? Are you feeling more confident about the future? Will you be spending more money or are the recent hikes in energy costs making you think twice? Whether you're a householder or a business, let us know how it feels for you.

Call Julian Worricker on 03700 100 444 or you can e-mail via the Radio 4 website or text on 84844.

Presenter: Julian Worricker
Producer: Vibeke Venema.
