The article focuses on the economic indicators. The consumer price index (CPI) inflation rose to 1.9% in March, from 1.6% in February, driven by stronger price increases for transport, food, furniture and clothing. The unemployment rate in the three months to February was 4.8%, up from 4.7% the previous quarter. The number of unemployed people increased by 29,000 to 1.43 million. The Recruitment Confidence Index shows a rise in the number of respondents expecting recruitment activity to increase compared to the previous quarter. More than 55,000 jobs were created across Great Britain's 21 key industries in March, continuing the positive stream of job creation at the start of 2005.
