    * The UK blue chip index closed 0.2 percent lower on Monday at 6114.81
points.
    * OIL: Oil prices were steady on Tuesday as brimming inventories and a
looming refined products glut offset supply disruptions in Canada and elsewhere
that have taken more than 2 million barrels a day of production out of the
market. 
    * BREXIT: British employers' spending on temporary workers rose at the
fastest pace in more than a year last month, as nerves around the upcoming
European Union referendum dissuaded them from taking on permanent staff, a
survey showed on Tuesday. 
    * RETAIL: British shoppers held off from buying new spring and summer
clothes during an unusually cold April, compounding a sense of uncertainty among
consumers ahead of June's EU referendum, surveys suggested on Tuesday.
 
    * METALS: London copper held around four-week lows on Tuesday after a weaker
dollar and renewed jitters about Chinese economic growth tarnished demand for
commodities. 
    * SHELL: Royal Dutch Shell Plc has restarted production at a
reduced rate at its Albian oil sands mining operation in Alberta, it said on
Monday, even as many energy companies remain offline after a major wildfire
ravaged the area.
