The main index, whose companies earn more than two-thirds of their profit from abroad, ended 0.1% higher, while the more domestically-focused FTSE 250 slipped 0.7%. A slump in sterling lifted internationally-exposed companies GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever and AstraZeneca, the biggest boosts to the FTSE 100. Stocks most sensitive to the any increased risk of a hard Brexit stumbled after multiple media reported rumours May's ministers could oust her in a row over her latest deal to exit the European Union.
British engineering services group Babcock said on Wednesday it expected revenue and underlying operating profit to fall in 2019/2020 as it reshapes its business in response to a tough domestic market. Babcock shares tumbled more than 9 percent by 0825 GMT, touching their lowest levels so far this year and taking the decline over the past year to almost 40 percent. Government contractors have been hit by a slowdown in decision-making because of Britain's impending exit from the European Union, which has forced a strategy rethink by Babcock whose structure has become increasingly complex.

The FTSE 100 ended 0.5 percent higher after rallying as much as 1 percent with gains capped due to investors shunning defensive stocks, and the midcaps added 0.6 percent. UK markets joined a global rally sparked by data showing Chinese factory activity grew for the first time in four months in March, as well as hopes of a resolution to a prolonged trade dispute between Washington and Beijing. Also driving sentiment was a survey that showed UK manufacturing growth at an unexpected 13-month high last month as the country stockpiles for Brexit.

The FTSE 100 ended 0.5 percent lower after steep losses in the morning as the index's stocks, which book much of their earnings in dollars, were marred by the pound surging to four-month highs. The midcaps added 0.1 percent as a 10 percent surge in Travis Perkins on better-than-expected full-year adjusted earnings helped cushion a slump in Metro Bank triggered by a cash call. The pound gained on reports that British Prime Minister Theresa May would rule out a no-deal Brexit and delay the March 29 deadline for exit from the European Union.
Britain's Babcock put the cost of restructuring its European business for Brexit at 10 million pounds ($13 million) a year to guarantee it would retain flying rights to provide emergency medical and fire fighting services across the bloc. Babcock, a key supplier of engineering and defence services to Britain's ministry of defence, has had to join the likes of easyJet and British Airways-owner IAG in restructuring in case Britain leaves the European Union without a trade deal.

Britain's government will take measures to identify and reduce risks taken by private firms that provide public services, it will say on Wednesday, in a bid to encourage companies that have become increasingly wary of taking on new government business. Britain, which hires private firms to run parts of its health service, schools, prisons and public transport, has been rethinking how it awards contracts after the collapse of contractor Carillion just over a year ago. "A more considered approach to risk allocation will make us a smarter, more attractive client to do business with," cabinet office minister Oliver Dowden will tell business leaders at the Confederation of British Industry on Wednesday.
