Deloitte senior economist comments on today's inflation figures

19 February 2020

Commenting on this morning’s inflation figures, Debapratim De, senior economist at Deloitte, said:

“The rise in both core and headline measures of inflation vindicates the Bank of England’s decision to keep interest rates on hold in January. Further rises would significantly reduce the chances of a rate cut in the near future.”
