English Business Survey January 2012

Across all regions except London, more workplaces, weighted by employment, reported lower output rather than higher output in January 2012 compared with October 2011.

Looking forward, the balance of expectations for output in April 2012 compared with January 2012 is positive across all regions, with the majority of workplaces, weighted by employment, expecting higher output.

But not much else going on: labour costs – unchanged, output prices – unchanged, employment – no change and none expected
