Small rise in inflation

CPI still in negative territory

There was a slight rise in the Island's rate of inflation last month, but it remains in negative territory.

It went up from -0.7% to -0.6%, as measured by the Consumer Prices Index.

The biggest rise was in travel costs, up around 2%, while alcoholic drinks and tobacco apparently saw the biggest fall, down 1.7% in March, compared to the previous month.
