But manufacturing survey data showed Monday external pressure remains, with factory activity declining for a fourth month in August amid flagging demand. "The lack of any meaningful growth in the service sector raises the likelihood that the United Kingdom economy is slipping into recession".

The outcomes had been revealed as a part of the IHS Markit/ CIPS UK providers PMI survey the place something under a 50 is seen by insiders as a sector in reverse.

"After surveys indicated that both manufacturing and construction remained in deep downturns in August, the lack of any meaningful growth in the service sector raises the likelihood that the United Kingdom economy is slipping into recession", IHS Markit chief business economist Chris Williamson said.

The GDP growth rate for the first three months of the current fiscal was at 5 per cent, which is the lowest in 26 quarters.
