Optimism dips at British services companies

Optimism across the UK services sector went down for the last three months to August, and British companies perceived the pinch from ascending costs notwithstanding fresh business mostly held up, as an industry poll revealed on Tuesday.

The Confederation of British Industry's quarterly informed that the services sector, producing the vast bulk of economic output in Great Britain, demonstrated that confidence dipped in both consumer and business sectors.

The previous week official data showed Britain's economy faced weakness on all fronts for the three months to June. Shoppers were definitely affected by the pound's dip, exports unable to fill the gap as well as business investment suppressed by Brexit uncertainty.

While the overall volume of activity at business as well as professional services companies strengthened to its highest value since May last year for the last three months to August, it slumped in consumer services companies.
