Consumers experience a small uplift.

GfK NOP Consumer Confidence Index has increased two points to -35.
 
Confidence in the "general economic situation over the next 12 months” measure has risen eight points.
 
Confidence in the "personal household finances over the next 12 months” increased six points. 

Rachael Joy in the Consumer Confidence team at GfK NOP commented:
"Consumer confidence remains very fragile, although rose slightly from its January figure. The public certainly recognise that it’s been a tough year -with the lowest ever score for the general economic situation over the past 12 months, however, looking to the future, we saw an uplift in consumers’ views of both their personal situation and the general economy over the next 12 months. This suggests a growing number of consumers believe that things will be better this time next year.”
