UK Manufacturing Growth At 4-month Low In February

British manufacturing growth slowed to its weakest level in four months in February with manufacturers hastening to implement measures to cushion the adverse effects of Brexit, survey data from IHS Markit showed on Friday. The IHS Markit/CIPS Purchasing Manaers' Index for manufacturing fell to a four-month low of 52 from 52.6 in January, which was revised down from 52.8. The reading was in line with economists' expectations.
