Comment from the report:

“This will be of help to shoppers as they plan their
household budgets for essential goods and services,” said Mike
Watson, head of retailer and business insight at NielsenIQ,
which provides data for the BRC.
“With uncertainty around discretionary spending, we expect
the intense competition across the marketplace to keep price
increases as low as possible this summer.”

The focus for the UK this week is the general election on July 4. A change of government is the unanimous expectation.
