Deteriorating employment conditions and high inflation continue to squeeze household incomes, with families £13 a week worse off than they were a year ago, according to a report. Asda's latest Income Tracker, which is compiled by Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr), found UK families typically had £164 a week left of income in October after paying regular bills such as food, clothing and housing costs, 7.1% less than a year ago. The report said rising utility bills were one of the main factors putting pressure on families during the month, as gas prices climbed by 24.1% and electricity bills increased up by 14.9%. The disposable income figure for October was £2 a week higher than £162 seen the previous month. Charles Davis, managing economist at Cebr, said: “Worsening employment conditions, alongside the persistently elevated rate of inflation, are continuing to erode household real incomes and family spending power. UK households will remain under pressure for some time.”
