Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - BEAUTIFULHOMES -

Fam­i­lies’ spend­ing power reached a mile­stone £200 a week typ­i­cally in April – the high­est level since at least 2008 – ac­cord­ing to a re­port. The av­er­age UK house­hold had £200 a week in dis­cre­tionary in­come last month, mark­ing a £12-a-week in­crease com­pared with the £188 they had in April 2015 – the Asda In­come Tracker found. The fig­ure is the high­est since the in­come tracker, com­piled for Asda by the Cen­tre for Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness Re­search, started in 2008.
