The Office for National Statistics has left its second quarter GDP estimate unrevised at 0.2 per cent.
Figures published by the ONS show growth was affected by a number of special factors including the royal wedding, an additional public holiday in April and the effects of the Japanese tsunami.
The office has maintained all the individual sector contributions to GDP at the levels reported last month. Total production output decreased by 1.6 per cent in the second quarter, while agriculture, forestry and fishing output fell by 1.3 per cent.
Positive contributions were made by services, where output increased by 0.5 per cent, and construction’s 0.5 per cent growth.
