The RMI’s National Franchise Dealers Association (NFDA), which represents franchised car and commercial vehicle retailers across the UK, welcomes the news that UK inflation rates fell to 2.5% in August.

Sue Robinson, NFDA Director commented “The NFDA is encouraged to see that inflation rates dropped in August offering some much needed rest bite to the consumer. A fall in inflation rates will help consumers by allowing them to retain a reasonable level of disposable income to consider larger purchases such as a new car.

“The NFDA will to continue to lobby for economic measures that will stimulate consumer demand and assist the recovery of the UK economy. We would like to see more initiatives that would have directly helped the retail sector.”
