LONDON (Reuters) - Some 14% of British companies say they have low or no confidence they will survive the next three months, a survey published by the Office for National Statistics showed on Thursday.

The ONS also estimated that 9% of the workforce was on furlough leave during the two weeks to Nov. 1.
