  • Construction output in the three months to October fell by 0.3% compared to the previous months, and was 3.4% higher than a year ago, according to the Office for National Statistics. The UK Statistics Authority has suspended the designation of these figures as National Statistics due to a failure by government to meet their requirements of improving construction price and cost indices that are used in the ONS’ estimations. 
  • Construction is expected to see the strongest level of hiring since Q4 2007 in the first quarter of 2015, according to the latest Manpower Employment Outlook survey. A positive balance of +9% of respondents expect to grow payrolls during the period.


  • Growth in UK manufacturing output ticked up slightly in the three months to October, according to ONS figures. Output expanded by 0.5% on the previous three months; the strongest rate of quarterly growth seen since June of this year.
