“People are frightened about cuts”

13th October 2010

Peter Hemmington, a partner at accountancy firm BDO, tells the BBC that "people are frightened about cuts".

Hemmington warns that the UK economy will grind to a halt at the start of next year, and may even start to contract again by next summer.

His comments come amid concerns among business leaders that growth forecasts for Q1 and Q2 if 2011 could seriously derail the government's planned spending cuts programme.
