Bank of England holds interest rates

The Bank of England has held interest rates at 0.5%.

The Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee also voted to continue with its quantitive easing programme worth £75 billion.

The Committee noted that since its previous meeting in March a total of just over £26 billion of asset purchases had been made and that it would take a further two months to complete the £75bn programme.
