Dr Steven McCabe in his BCU Centre for Brexit Studies blog on Jan 5, outlined the issues ahead for 2022, including concerns about inflationary pressures building up. Later that day the British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) published a poll they carried out which showed that 58% of firms responding to the survey which was carried out between November 1 and November 22, intended to raise prices for customers, with only 1% planning to reduce them. This was a record percentage planning to raise process since that survey started though it must be pointed out that it was carried out before the extra strains caused by the Omicron variant started being felt and also before the interest rate increase by the Bank of England on December 12.
