The Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee voted unanimously to hold interest rates unchanged at the record-low rate of 0.5%, and the level of asset purchases at £375bn.
Under the Banks forward guidance policy the focus had been on the unemployment level falling to the threshold of 7%. However this target was left in question following the BoE Inflation report with Carney, saying the bank might not raise rates immediately following a drop in unemployment.
9-0 to hold interest rates at 0.5%
9-0 to keep asset purchases unchanged at £375bn
