Consumer price inflation rises to 1.9%

The rate of consumer price inflation rose to 1.9% in November from 1.5% the previous month, although the price of clothing and footwear dipped, official statistics showed.

Transport costs were the main contributor to the increase in the Consumer Prices Index, the Office for National Statistics reported.

There were also small upwards contributions from men’s and women’s outerwear. However, the price of clothing and footwear overall was down 6.3% in the 12 months to November.

The biggest downward influence on the CPI came from food and non-alcoholic drinks.

The Retail Prices Index, which includes housing costs, rose by 0.3% in the year to November versus a fall of 0.8% in October.
