LONDON (Reuters) - British spending on credit and debit cards held at 95% of its pre-pandemic level last week, unchanged from the previous week's reading, official data showed on Friday.

The Office for National Statistics also said online job adverts last week stood at 127% of their February 2020 level, up 8 percentage points from the previous week, based on figures from online jobs portal Adzuna.
