The UK economy grew 0.2 per cent in the second quarter of 2022, a slightly more positive performance than previously thought.
The Office for National Statistics on Friday announced that a previous estimate of a 0.1 percent decline in GDP for the period had been revised upwards.
It means the economy did not shrink in the three months to June, has previously had been thought.
The change implies that the UK economy is not currently in recession, as the Bank of England had predicted earlier this month.
A technical recession occurs when there are two consecutive quarters of negative growth.
However, the outlook for the UK economy took a major hit this week following a disastrous market response to the government’s budget.
