Population in United Kingdom

United Kingdom - Population

GDP growth was well above the European average in Q1, as the removal of virtually all Covid-19 restrictions supported private consumption. Moreover, fixed investment accelerated from Q4 due to a large expansion in government investment. However, business investment contracted, while exports fell sharply. Moreover, growth only occurred early in the quarter, as monthly data shows GDP flatlined in February and shrank in March, as the cost-of-living squeeze intensified. Moving to Q2, PMI data for April and May suggests a sharp loss of momentum, in line with record inflation, all-time low consumer sentiment and renewed supply chain difficulties. In May, the government announced a GBP 15 billion cost-of-living package, with measures including a discount on energy bills for all households, and fiscal transfers to low earners. The measures will support activity, but potentially at the cost of generating extra inflation.
