Commenting on this morning’s UK PMI flash data, Melanie Baker, senior economist at Royal London Asset Management said: 

“August was likely a relatively good month for the UK recovery, helped by policy initiatives, such as the “Eat Out to Help Out” scheme, but today’s September PMI data is consistent with slower economic growth once the scheme ended.

Reports that the Chancellor is looking to provide continued support for workers, as the furlough scheme ends, are very welcome but any increased social distancing is likely to be a further short-term drag on growth moving into October.”
