LONDON (Bywire News) - In April, Rish Sunak, the British finance minister, embraced an economic recovery output, ranking at 2.3% higher than the previous month and around 27.6% more than in the early stages of lockdown, in April 2020.

In a statement released on Friday, he said, "Today’s figures are a promising sign that our economy is beginning to recover,"

"But I know there are people who still need our support, which is why the furlough scheme is in place until September."
