British Chamber of Commerce the economy grew
The UK economy returned to growth in the third quarter, according to the British Chambers of Commerce.
Based on its survey of 7,593 UK firms, the BCC says the economy grew by 0.5% between July and September, after three consecutive quarters of contraction.
The BCC said it did not agree with the Office for National Statistics' "gloomy estimation" that the UK has been in recession for the whole period.
But fixing the UK's finances will take longer than previously hoped, it said.
It called on the government for additional measures to boost economic growth, such as implementing quickly plans to create a "British business bank" as well as unlocking infrastructure investment.
