BOE’s Vlieghe, McCafferty, Saunders and Cunliffe are facing questions on the inflation report 21 November 2017


  • It’s possible to wait before tightening policy until there is clear evidence that pay growth is responding to the level of unemployment in line with our forecast


  • Inflation likely to peak around now if oil and sterling remain where they are
  • Expects wage growth to rise to 3.0%
  • If you wait for all signs to line up before raising rates, you will almost certainly be too late


  • CPI is likely to rise a little above 3.0% in the near term on rising energy prices
  • Considers it likely that interest rates will need to rise further over time
  • In near-term, Brexit is likely to reduce the economy’s openness
