LONDON, Sept 21 British economic growth has
slowed in the three months since Britain voted to leave the
European Union, and business investment and employment are
likely to be flat over the coming year, a quarterly Bank of
England survey showed on Wednesday.
The BoE's regional agents said consumer spending had
remained resilient, according to businesses they had spoken to,
while the housing market was steady outside of London.
"The annual rate of activity growth had slowed overall as
uncertainty had risen following the EU referendum, although it
had remained positive," the BoE said.
"Companies' investment and employment intentions had fallen,
and were consistent with broadly flat levels of capital spending
and employment over the coming six to twelve months," it added.
