by on October 19, 2017

British companies froze their marketing budgets during the third quarter amid rising uncertainties about the economy as the UK looks to exit the European Union, a survey showed last Wednesday.

The IPA Bellwether report showed that near 70 percent of its survey panel recorded no change in marketing budget since the second quarter.
