The Bank of England decided to hold the base rate at 5.25 percent again this week. Some savings providers have dropped their rates in recent weeks as the climb in the base rate has halted.
Andrew Bailey, governor of the Bank of England, said as the decision was announced: “We’ve held rates because even though there has been good news on inflation, we need to be sure that it falls back to our two percent target and stays there sustainably.
“That means we need to see more evidence that inflation will fall further, and stay low before we are able to lower interest rates.
“Getting inflation down, and keeping it there, is the best thing we can do for households and businesses that we speak to up and down the country.”
