"It is clear that the ongoing economic and political uncertainties are continuing to impact consumer confidence and spending. However, the Board is pleased to report that the business is trading in line with our expectations. In the 17 weeks ended 23 November 2019, the like-for-like order intake decreased 7.1% and the two year like-for-like order intake decreased 4.0%. This is an improvement on the like-for-like trading for the first nine weeks of the year which we reported with our full year results.
