Its monitor of business confidence, sponsored by accountants Grant Thornton, suggests economic growth of 1.3% in the fourth quarter of 2013.
The report identified signs of rising business confidence.

The CBI, whose annual conference begins on Monday, said the UK economy was recovering at a “slow and steady” pace.
