LONDON (Reuters) - British consumer spending on credit and debit cards rebounded last week after dipping around the Easter holidays, while restaurant reservations also grew, the Office for National Statistics said on Thursday.

Card spending rose to 110% of its February 2020 average level in the week to May 5, the ONS said, up 8 percentage points from the previous week.

The card spending figures are neither seasonally nor inflation adjusted.
