LONDON (Reuters) - One in eight British workers were still partly or fully on furlough in the two weeks to Sept. 6, and 16% of businesses were no longer trading, official figures showed on Thursday.
“84% of businesses were currently trading, compared with 66% of businesses in ... 1 June to 14 June,” the Office for National Statistics said.
The ONS had previously estimated that 97% of businesses were back trading.
