LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Office for National Statistics said on Thursday it will introduce a monthly measure of gross domestic product (GDP) in July next year.


"ONS has today announced that, following a consultation, it will go ahead with plans to introduce a new publishing model for its short-term output indicators, including a monthly and rolling 3-monthly estimate for GDP," it said in a statement.


The release next July will contain the first estimate of economic growth covering May 2018.
