Still, the latest reading signalled a far steeper pace of contraction than at the worst point of the global financial crisis, linked to business shutdowns, cancellations of customer orders and a general slump in demand amid the coronavirus pandemic. New work and employment continued to fall, with both rates of contraction the second-fastest in more than 20 years of data collection. Looking ahead, business confidence continued to improve from the series record low seen in March.
