embargo: For immediate release

Commenting on the inflation figures for January published today (Tuesday), TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said:

'The inflation message is don't panic. The rise today has more to do with what was happening a year ago than anything new in the economy, and is likely to fall back to its target range in due course. The real threat remains a double-dip recession, and boosting jobs and growth remain the most important priorities.'
