- UK Sept-Nov total earnings +3.2%, unchanged from Aug-Oct
- UK Sept-Nov ex-bonus earnings +3.4% vs +3.5% Aug-Oct
- UK Sept-Nov real total earnings +1.6% vs +1.5% Aug-Oct
- UK Sept-Nov real ex-bonus earnings +1.8%, unchanged from Aug-Oct

further in Dec, with CPIH (the inflation measure used to discount 
earnings) falling to 1.4%, slightly above the 1.3% rate of CPI. The 
BOE's MPC acknowledged weakening pay growth at the Dec meet, attributing
