6:13pm UK, Wednesday April 04, 2012

The UK's service sector showed surprisingly strong growth in March, fuelling hopes that Britain may avoid slipping back into recession.
The Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) for the industry rose to 55.3 last month, up from 53.8 in February, according to the latest data from Markit and CIPS.

Last month's increase in business activity helped boost growth in the service sector over the first three months of the year to its highest level since the second quarter of 2010.

Service industries ranging from banks and telecommunication firms to restaurants, pubs and hairdressers make up almost three quarters of the UK economy.

The sector shrank slightly in the final quarter of 2011, but returned to growth in January.

The rebound in activity in Britain's dominant industry, combined with recent strong data in the manufacturing and construction sectors, suggested the UK economy grew by as much as 0.5% in the first quarter of 2012, the authors of the keenly-watched survey said.

That would mean the UK would miss a double-dip recession, with the economy bouncing back more strongly than many economists had predicted.



Manufacturing and construction have also picked up this year

Chris Williamson, chief economist at Markit, said: "Faster growth of services activity in March indicates that the economy is on the up again, skirting recession as business continues to bounce back from the lull seen late last year."

The overall contraction of the UK economy at the end of last year in the wake of an escalation in the eurozone debt crisis had triggered fears of a renewed recession.

Last week, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development warned that it thought the UK had gone back into recession in the first quarter of 2012.

But other data has been more optimistic and official GDP figures will be published later this month.

Ross Walker, UK economist at the Royal Bank of Scotland, told Sky News that the latest uplift in the services sector indicated the economy was picking up, but added that "there are still grounds for caution".

The PMI data also showed service firms' confidence about the year ahead stayed near February's level, which was the highest in a year.

Mr Williamson said: "What's particularly encouraging is that this revival of business confidence is encouraging firms to take on more staff.

"However, this is no runaway recovery. Although on the rise, job creation and inflows of new business continue to run well below rates generally seen in the years prior to the financial crisis."

whilst the Service industry is doing quite well, the Production Industry is not, so the Stock Market, concerned over this and the Spanish Crisis is
affecting the Stock Market.

Badboy, sad to say but Britain is faring worse than last month and all the Teachers can do is strike !!!!! The chief Teacher's Union spokeswoman was
being interviewed on T.V. this morning and you could tell the Interviewer was giving her short shrift with her lame excuses . disrupting Children's
Education, A job for life when so many are unemployed or forced to take P/Time employment, the only Job to have a Private Pension as well as a Government Old Age Pension....he really had no sympathy for their cause.

I've a feeling this might be a bit of b/s on the governments part, Badboy. There will be little actual installation work done for several years, if the scheme goes ahead at all.

Unemployment set to rise in U.K

Post  Panda on Mon 9 Apr - 6:47

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5:54am UK, Monday April 09, 2012

Unemployment is set to rise further this year and will remain high for the next 18 months, according to a new study.
The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) said an extra 100,000 people will be without a job before the end of the summer.

IPPR analysis said that as a result of the hard times, unemployment will not fall for an estimated 18 months.

It said the North West, London, Yorkshire and Humberside and the East of England will see the highest increases in unemployment.


There have been some encouraging signs that the labour market is stabilising, but there is clearly still a big challenge ahead to bring down unemployment.

A Department for Work and Pensions spokesman
However, the jobless total is predicted to fall in the West Midlands, Northern Ireland and the South West.

The IPPR expected 50,000 more men and a similar number of women will become unemployed this year as public sector jobs continue to be cut.

It estimates more than 40,000 of those becoming jobless will be under the age of 25.

IPPR Senior Research Fellow Kayte Lawton said: "The personal tragedy of the slow economic recovery is the way unemployment will continue to rise over the next year, even once the economy begins to grow.

"This has been the longest recession and the slowest recovery that Britain has ever experienced.

"The risk is that high unemployment becomes a permanent feature of the UK economy, as it did in the 1980s.



There have been protests over widening public sector cuts

Ms Lawton added: "Even within the context of the Government's deficit reduction plan, it is short-sighted of the Government not to do more to get people back into jobs."

The think tank's fears come as unemployment stands at 2.67 million, a jobless rate of 8.4%, which is the highest since 1995.

More than one million 16 to 24-year-olds are already out of work, with new figures later this month expected to show another increase in the figures.

A Department for Work and Pensions spokesman said: "There have been some encouraging signs that the labour market is stabilising, but there is clearly still a big challenge ahead to bring down unemployment.

"The international economic outlook remains difficult, but we will do everything we can to help the unemployed find jobs."

If you do Badboy I think it would affect your Benefits and you would also have to pay someone from your own pocket.

I thought a Tax Credit allowed people to work so many hours without paying Tax. If you start employing People, even on a P/Time basis, once your
allowance was used up you would be liable.....but seek advice from the DHSS and Tax Dept before you do anything. To recruit students you would have to have evidence of your Experience I think. There are Agencies who teach on line or provide CD's search the net.

These are not so important as the lack of skilled workers. There is a huge shortage of engineering skills just when they are needed and ever since firms gave up training Apprentices and our manufacturing base in cars was lost to Germany and the U.S. Britain last a lot of it's export business.
