– Fitch now forecasts that general government gross debt (GGGD) will peak at 101% of GDP in 2015-16 (equivalent to 86% of GDP for public sector net debt, PSND) and will only gradually decline from 2017-18. This compares with Fitch’s previous projection for GGGD peaking at 97% and declining from 2016-17 and the ‘AAA’ median of around 50%. – Fitch previously commented that failure to stabilise debt below 100% of GDP and place it on a firm downward path towards 90% of GDP over the medium term would likely trigger a rating downgrade. Despite the UK’s strong fiscal financing flexibility underpinned by its own currency with reserve currency status and the long average maturity of public debt, the fiscal space to absorb further adverse economic and financial shocks is no longer consistent with a ‘AAA’ rating. – Higher than previously projected budget deficits and debt primarily reflects the weak growth performance of the UK economy in recent years, partly due to headwinds of private and public sector deleveraging and the eurozone crisis. Fitch has revised down its forecast economic growth in 2013 and 2014 to 0.8% and 1.8%, respectively, from 1.5% and 2.0% at the time of the last review of the UK’s sovereign ratings in September 2012. The UK economy is not expected to reach its 2007 level of real GDP until 2014, underscoring the weakness of the economic recovery. – Despite significant progress in reducing public sector net borrowing (PSNB from a peak of 11.2% of GDP (GBP159bn) in 2009-10, the budget deficit remains 7.4% of GDP (excluding the effect of the transfer of Royal Mail pensions) and is not expected to fall below 6% of GDP and GBP100bn until the end of the current parliament term. The slower pace of deficit reduction means that the next government will be required to implement substantial spending reductions (and/or tax increases) if public debt is to be stabilised and reduced over the medium term. The Stable Outlook on the UK’s sovereign ratings reflects the following factors. – Under Fitch’s baseline economic and fiscal scenario, which assumes a continued policy commitment to reducing the underlying budget deficit and medium-term annual growth potential of 2%-2.25%, government debt gradually falls as a share of national income in the latter half of the decade.

Diagnosis The clinical presentation, progressive nature of the disease and failure to find any other diagnosis are characteristic of vCJD. There are no completely reliable tests to use before the onset of clinical symptoms. However, magnetic resonance scans and tonsillar biopsy are useful diagnostic tests. The brainwave pattern observed during an electroencephalogram is abnormal in most vCJD patients. Currently, the diagnosis of vCJD can only be confirmed following pathological examination of the brain post mortem. Characteristically, multiple microscopic and abnormal aggregates encircled by holes are seen in the brain tissue, resulting in a daisy-like appearance described by the term “florid plaques”. Probable cause The nature of the vCJD agent is being investigated and is still a matter of debate. One prevalent theory is that the agent is composed largely, if not entirely, of a self-replicating misfolded protein, referred to as a prion. There is strong scientific evidence that vCJD is linked with exposure to a TSE of cattle called BSE. The link between vCJD and BSE was first hypothesized because of the association of these two TSEs in time and place. In addition, laboratory evidence indicates that vCJD is linked causally with BSE. Intensive surveillance in European countries has confirmed the high incidence of vCJD in the United Kingdom, the country with the largest potential exposure to BSE. Several cases in other countries were likely exposed to the BSE agent while residing in the United Kingdom. The most likely cause of vCJD is exposure to the BSE agent through consumption of food from bovine origin most plausibly contaminated by infected bovine brain or other central nervous system tissue.
The UK is also due to host two major international sporting events over the coming years – the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the 2015 Rugby World Cup (at various locations around the country). These events are likely to result in large numbers of participants and spectators travelling to the United Kingdom. An overview of the UK’s top 10 tourism markets highlights the fact that Europe remains the UK’s main source of tourism, despite the continuing economic uncertainty. However we are calculating a slight decline on our previous Q4 forecast as the continuing economic downturn in much of Europe over this period is likely to act as a deterrent for potential tourists. However the other regions are forecast to see a growth in arrivals over 2013 and we have increased our forecasts for inbound tourists from these regions. After a period of significant infrastructure development and hotel-building activity in the run-up to the 2012 Olympic Games, the scene may now be set for more modest overall growth in the UK’s hotel industry. Recent developments include: – Accor is launching a new brand in the UK, the Adiago aparthotels, the first of which opened in Liverpool in March 2013. – The group also re-launched their Mercure hotel in London in June 2013, following an extensive redesign of the hotel. It is the flagship UK hotel in a brand Accor is hoping to double the size of by 2016. – Over the past quarter ICHG has signed three new hotels to its Holiday Inn brand. UK construction company Balfour Beatty secured a contract worth GBP121mn (US$181.5mn) to build a hotel, leisure and apartment complex for Grove Developments in North Greenwich Peninsula in London. – China-based commercial property and entertainment conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group is to develop a hotel and residential project in London. – UK conglomerate Rigby Group has acquired a majority stake in Exeter International Airport. – The GBP80mn (US$123.5mn) redevelopment of the terminal at Stansted Airport has begun. – UK airports operator Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has awarded BAM Construct, Carillion and Galliford Try a contract for its capital delivery programme framework worth up to GBP100mn (US $156.65mn) annually.
