John Hawksworth, chief economist at consultancy PwC, blamed Brexit-related uncertainty for the economy’s “loss of momentum”.

He said: “Growth seems likely to remain subdued through the rest of 2019, but we would hope for a gradual revival in activity over the course of 2020 if current political and economic uncertainties ease.

“Our main scenario is for 1 percent GDP growth in 2020 assuming an orderly Brexit.”

Professor Costas Milas, of the University of Liverpool’s management school, described the figures as “quite poor”.
