LONDON – British consumer spending on credit and debit cards rose slightly in the week to Oct. 7 to 102% of its level in February 2020, before COVID-19 lockdowns, the Office for National Statistics said on Thursday.

The ONS also said the volume of online job advertisements was unchanged from the previous week at 40% above its pre-pandemic level, with the highest gains seen for transport, logistics and warehouse jobs where adverts were 380% of their pre-pandemic level.
