Bank of England Maintains Bank Rate at 0.5%
The Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee today voted to maintain the official Bank Rate paid on commercial bank reserves at 0.5%. The Committee also voted to continue with its programme of asset purchases totalling £125 billion financed by the issuance of central bank reserves.
The Committee expects that the announced programme will take another two months to complete. The scale of the programme will be kept under review.
