The result came in below market expectations of a 0.9% quarter-on-quarter rise and contrasted Q2’s 0.48% decrease, which had represented sharpest rate of contraction in four-and-a-half years. In terms of specific categories, fruit and vegetables, private transport supplies and services and property rates and related services recorded quarter-on-quarter increases in prices.
