“Monthly increases were broadly-based across all major categories including clothing, suggesting that the cold weather did not impact sales as much as feared (though clothing remains -6.4% y/y). Today’s positive report should provide a good lift to the household sector heading into the second quarter and offset some of the headwinds coming from referendum-related uncertainty that is particularly affecting UK business spending.”
