Lloyds TSB England Regional PMIs
09 May 2011
Business activity increased in all nine English regions, in April, led by the South East and the West Midlands, according to the latest Lloyds TSB regional Purchasing Managers’ Index™ (PMI™). However, most English regions saw slower rates of expansion than in March, and five of the nine regions recorded their weakest output growth in 2011 to date. Yorkshire & Humber saw a particularly steep slowdown, with the latest increase in private sector business activity the slowest since January 2010.
