A recommendation to revise the British manufacturing growth eased further in August to its lowest level in 14 months as output and demand increased at slower rates, survey results from Markit Economics showed Monday. The Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers' Index dropped to 52.5 from a revised 54.8 in July. Economists had expected the score to fall to 55.1 from July's original figure of 55.4.
