B B C: High Energy Prices 'dog Uk Firms'.

Recommended Posts

'High energy prices 'dog UK firms'':


Companies in the UK are being choked by high energy prices and expect to lay off workers in the next few months, business leaders warn.

Small and medium sized firms have suffered a slowdown in domestic and overseas orders in the last quarter, according to a survey by the CBI.

This has left employers less than optimistic about future prospects.


Manufacturers have been pushing for help from the Bank of England through another interest rate cut, but this is not expected to happen until the spring.
