Is this the end of the recession?

About This Report:

Earlier this month, the UK was officially lifted out of recession.

But how convincing is a growth rate of 0.1 percent and are there any indications of a recovery in Leicestershire? This brief report considers the views of economists, economic forecasters, official statistics and local consultation evidence.
