  • Output in the construction industry in the three months to October rose by 6.4% compared to a year ago, and by 2.5% compared to the preceding three months, according to the Office for National Statistics. This came from annual rises of over 6% for both new build and repair and maintenance work. The ONS also revised upwards figures from January 2012 to September 2013; output is now estimated to have increased by 1% during the first three quarters of 2013. Previous releases estimated a minor 0.2% fall during this period.
