Quotes

"All told, the IJG Business Climate Index remained flat in February, albeit at an elevated level following strong growth in much of 2013. Once again, the leading indicator has turned extremely positive, suggesting a strong and improving business climate going forward" the report said
"Far from 'doing more with less', the current budget sees the largest expenditure expansion since 2011 and the second largest growth in expenditure since independence" the IPPR said
Lyon at uSwitch.com said it was a welcome move. "Energy suppliers benefiting from credits on customer accounts and failing to respond to requests to refund them was turning into a bone of contention.
