The total volume of new orders fell back in August following improvements in June and July. The general level of orders has fallen back since the middle of last year.

The total volume of new orders received by contractors for construction work in Great Britain in the three months June 1995 to August 1995 was 2% lower than in the three months March 1995 to May 1995 and 8% lower than in the three months June 1994 to August 1994.

These provisional figures reflect the volume of orders at constant (1990) prices adjusted to exclude normal seasonal variations.

New orders in the private housing sector in the three months June 1995 to August 1995 were 9% lower than in the previous three months and 19% lower than in the corresponding period a year ago.

Public housing and housing association orders in the latest three months were 11% lower than in the previous three months and 8% lower than in the same period a year earlier.

Infrastructure orders in the latest three months were 11% lower compared with the previous three months but 14% higher than in the corresponding period a year earlier.

Public non-housing orders (excluding infrastructure) in the latest three months were 13% higher than in the previous three months but 12%lower than in the corresponding period a year ago.
