"We are pleased with the Group’s first half trading performance which was better than we anticipated and provides a good platform for the full year.  Looking ahead, we expect to continue to benefit from both our strong market positions and exposure to multiple geographies and for the positive trends in the Irish and Netherlands businesses to continue in the second half.  Whilst we remain optimistic on the medium term outlook for the UK, we are cautious about the shorter term impact of current uncertainty and pressure on real incomes which may temper growth in spending on housing RMI." – Gavin Slark (11 July 2017)
