Cable can’t rule out double dip

Business Secretary Vince Cable said yesterday that Britain’s faltering economy could slip back into recession, but government action to boost growth is likely to help the country avoid another downturn. During an interview with ITV news, Cable was asked if he could promise that Britain would not experience a double-dip recession. He said: “I can't do that. We know conditions are very difficult but the government is doing the best it can to protect people.”
