MPC leaves Bank rate on hold

The Bank of England kept interest rates at their record low of 0.5% yesterday, and the markets are not expecting a rise until well into next year. Rates have now been at this level for almost six years. Martin Weale and Ian McCafferty, two members of the Monetary Policy Committee who had voted for a rate rise since August, changed their minds last month amid concern over low inflation.
