Bank of England survey shows furlough numbers falling, Brexit worries

LONDON, Oct 1 (Reuters) - A monthly Bank of England business survey showed the proportion of British employees still on furlough in September had dropped to 7% from 12% in August and a peak of 36% in April, ahead of the government programme’s closure at the end of October.

However, firms said they expected a recent recovery in demand to stall over the next three months, and reported the highest level of anxiety over Brexit since December last year. (Reporting by David Milliken; Editing by Alison Williams)
