British and Irish Lions tour

The 2017 British and Irish Lions tour took place from 3 June to 8 July. The impact of this tour on the business price indexes was mostly out of coverage, due to being largely outside the quarterly pricing reference window for the period (most of our prices are collected on 15 May for the June quarter). Some effects of the Lions tour were captured in our monthly collected prices, for example, international airfares to and from Europe.
