Figures from the DTI for new construction orders reveal a mixed picture. In the three months to August 2001, orders fell by five per cent compared with the same period a year earlier.

However, in the year to August there was a rise of two per cent compared with the previous year.

A report from the Greater London Authority into the causes of homelessness among women identifies that 24 per cent of women working full time in London earn less that £13,000, compared with 11 per cent of their male counterparts.

Other causes include domestic violence and the over-representation of women among refugees and pensioners.

The RICS Tender Price Index has shown that tender prices rose by 7.6 per cent between the second quarter of 2000 and the same period in 2001 - significantly above general inflation, which rose by 1.7 per cent.
