    FTSE 100 rises as pound dips; Ocado, housebuilders rally

    The FTSE 100 was up 0.4 percent and the FTSE 250 was 0.1 percent higher by 0924 GMT. Sterling also fell as lawmakers wrested control of the parliamentary agenda from the government for a day in the hope of breaking the deadlock over Brexit and parliament will hold indicative votes on a range of options on Wednesday. "The pound has continued to absorb most of the political paralysis coming from MPs at Westminster, as headline fatigue starts to become more entrenched amongst currency traders," said CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson.

    [$$] Ferguson expects growth to falter on slowing markets

    Ferguson, the FTSE 100 plumbing and heating equipment supplier, said on Tuesday that slowing markets would knock its growth rate in the second half of its financial year and anticipated full-year profits at the lower end of analysts' expectations. The group — formerly known as Wolseley — said organic growth would fall to 3-5 per cent for the six months to July 2019, compared to 7.5 per cent in the 2018 financial year and 6.5 per cent in the six months to January. Full year trading profit would as a result be at the lower end of analysts' expectations which had averaged $1.63bn.

    Dry summer hits United Utilities' fiscal 2018 earnings

    The company also forecast higher revenue for the year ending March 31 as utilities in Britain benefit from outcome delivery incentives (ODIs) paid by regulator Ofwat for meeting or exceeding targets including project completions. United Utilities, which supplies water to 3 million homes and 200,000 businesses in the north-west of England, said trading was in line with its expectations for the year ending in March 31. United Utilities warned in November that an extreme period of hot and dry weather during the summer had caused significant strain on its water resources and network, with reservoir levels running "extremely low".

    British Parliament to vote on May's Brexit deal for third time on Tuesday: reports

    U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will put a version of her Brexit withdrawal agreement to a vote in Parliament on Tuesday, according to local reports. This will be the third vote on May's deal, which has previously been rejected in January and earlier this month. The U.K. was scheduled to leave the European Union by March 29, but last week secured an extension that would postpone the deadline to June 30 if May's deal was supported by lawmakers. If the deal is rejected, the U.K. will have until April 12 to decide on next steps or leave the EU without a withdrawal agreement. The British pound pared earlier losses following the reports and was last up 0.2% at $1.3242.
