Bri­tain’s FTSE 100 in­dex rose on

Fri­day, sup­ported by a rally in oil stocks af­ter OPEC and Rus­sia agreed to cut out­put, but in­vestors also fret­ted about next Tues­day’s key par­lia­men­tary vote on Brexit. The in­dex rose 1.1 per cent, but put in its worst weekly per­for­mance in two months as jit­ters over Bri­tain’s di­vorce from the Euro­pean Union sapped con­fi­dence in the mar­ket. The in­dex fell 2.9 per cent this week.
