Brexit to have ‘no impact’ on Christmas shopping spend

More than two-thirds of UK shoppers say the result of the EU referendum will have no effect on the amount they will spend this Christmas, a new report has shown.

A survey by PwC found the average UK adult will spend £280 on Christmas presents this year, The Telegraph reported.

Shoppers from London were most likely to say Brexit would have the most impact on their spend, as 44% declared it would have a slight or considerable impact.

However those in Yorkshire and Humber overwhelmingly felt the result of the vote would have no impact on Christmas shopping.

People in Scotland plan to spend the most this Christmas – £328.66 – while those in the East Midlands will spend the least, at £241.47.
