Data to be released on Tuesday is expected to show that the UK economy will have slowed between April and June.

The growth figures may, according to some analysts, show a slight contraction of the economy after a 0.5% growth in the opening quarter of the year.

If data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) is weak there will be increased pressure on the government to take measures to boost growth.

However, Chancellor George Osbourne believes the government must stick to their original economic plan.

"We have brought stability to the British economy, we have brought interest rates down and we are creating private sector jobs. That is all evidence that our economic plan is working and on track," he told a press conference.
