UK banking group Lloyds TSB has said it is on course for "satisfactory" half-year trading helped by higher lending.

In a trading update, Lloyds said it had continued to "maintain and grow market share in its core markets, particularly mortgage and credit card lending".

Mortgage balances rose 13% in the first quarter with unsecured lending up 12%.

Chief executive Eric Daniels said the bank was making "good progress" and was "well positioned" to improve its performance in the second half of 2004.
