ONS previously announced that in order to complete sufficient quality assurance, the industry breakdowns of business investment that would normally have been available in the Q1 2013 Business Investment Statistical Release, published on 27 June 2013, would instead be published on 31 July.
However, the quality assurance of these data is taking longer than expected, which means that it will not be possible to publish the industry breakdowns until 26 September. However, to help meet user needs for more detailed information on investment, ONS will instead release breakdowns of gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) by sector and asset in Chapter 9 of the 2013 Blue Book, published on 31 July. This will be followed on 16 August with the publication of a new detailed breakdown of GFCF by industry, asset and product. The release will also include product and industry breakdowns for the other components of gross capital formation: changes in inventories and valuables.
ONS apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
