PPI claims: Consumer spending 'at lowest level during November'

Payment protection insurance (PPI) claims and loan refunds may help people to feel more secure in their financial situation and give them the extra cash they require to start spending.

Despite the proximity to Christmas, consumer spending in November was the lowest it had been all year as people's incomes are not rising at the same rate as inflation, a new report from Lloyds TSB found.

The research revealed that during the month, incomes grew by an average of 1.9 per cent, compared with a 3.9 per cent increase in the cost of everyday essentials.

PPI claims could be particularly timely as two-thirds of the UK population stated they will need to cut back on Christmas spending this year, while one-third will use a credit card to cover the cost of gifts.

The British Retail Consortium has said that recent Office for National Statistics figures which show an annual growth in sales are at odds with its own research, which found that if inflation was taken into account, sales volumes this November were lower than in the corresponding month in 2010.
