UK CONSUMER CONFIDENCE The GfK measure of consumer confidence, a barometer of public sentiment about personal finances and the economy, was +4 this month, unchanged from March and substantially higher than its low point of -33 in December 2011. The measure spent most of the second half of last year in mildly negative territory before turning positive in January.

UK MANUFACTURING The countrys manufacturing output has reached a seven-month high in the latest sign that the economy is gathering pace after a slowdown towards the end of last year. The Markit/Cips purchasing managers index hit 54.1 in February, up from Januarys 53.1, well above the 50 mark that separates growth from contraction.The survey indicated manufacturing output is growing at a quarterly rate of 0.5%, compared with 0.2% in the final three months of 2014 .
CONSTRUCTION The Markit/CIPS construction purchasing managers index for January rose to 59.1 from Decembers low of 57.6, well above the 50 mark that signifies growth and ahead of the forecasts of economists who had expected a decline. The latest reading, however, was the second-lowest since September 2013.
RETAIL SALES Figures from the CBI distributive trades survey showed that 50% of companies surveyed reported that sales volumes were higher than a year ago. Only 10% said that they were lower. The reading was a fall from the near 27 year high in December, when the balance of 61% of shops reported a sales boost, but better than expected 35% figure.
LATE PAYMENT More than a third of small and medium-sized businesses want larger companies who persistently pay late to be barred from government contracts. Only 9% of 500 SMEs surveyed by BFS said that their debtors were making prompt payments at the end of 2013, compared with one in five in 2009. A separate report by the Forum of Private Business showed that almost a quarter of its members had suffered an increase in late payments over the past year, in stark contrast with 3% who reported a decrease. About 29% have witnessed a rise in the average number of days beyond the deadline that payment is made late.
