LONDON (Reuters) - British finance minister Rishi Sunak welcomed a recovery in economic output in April, which was 2.3% higher than a month before and 27.6% higher than in April 2020, when the economy was in its first pandemic lockdown.

"Today's figures are a promising sign that our economy is beginning to recover," he said in a statement after the data was released on Friday. "But I know there are people who still need our support, which is why the furlough scheme is in place until September."
