Lower inflation lifts UK consumer sentiment to two-year high

British consumers are their most confident since January 2022 as lower inflation helped them to feel better about their finances, a survey showed on Friday, welcome news for Prime Minister Rishi Sunak before a national election expected this year.

The GfK consumer confidence index rose to -19 in January from -22 in December. A Reuters poll of economists had forecast a slightly smaller improvement to -21.

While British inflation unexpectedly rose to 4% in December, denting investors' hopes of quick interest rate cuts by the Bank of England, it is well below its peak of 11.1% in October 2022.

UK halts trade negotiations with Canada over hormones in beef ban

Negotiations between the UK and Canada on a post-Brexit trade deal have broken down after nearly two years, following a row over beef and cheese.

Canada has been pushing for the UK to relax a ban on hormone-treated beef, which its producers say in effect shuts them out of the British market.

Meanwhile, the UK has concerns about Canada putting import taxes of up to 245% on British cheese products.

The pause in talks mean British car firms could also face higher tariffs.

It will also mean the UK's trading terms with Canada will now be worse than when it was part of the EU's deal with the country.

Total goods trade between the two countries was worth £19.2bn in 2020, according to the UK government, with UK imports from Canada worth £7.3bn and UK exports to Canada worth £11.8bn.

The electric carmaker, which is led by multi-billionaire Elon Musk, said its sales growth "may be notably lower" in 2024 despite cutting prices.

Tesla's annual earnings, which were announced on Wednesday, also came in below Wall Street expectations.
