Deloitte comments on today’s GDP data

11 February 2020

“The UK economy faced headwinds from domestic political uncertainty and softening global growth last year. Under the circumstances a 1.4% growth rate wasn’t bad – and after all it was marginally better than 2018 and last year’s euro area growth rate.

A bounce in business confidence and greater optimism in the housing market suggests that we should see a snap back in activity this quarter.”
