Bank governor Mark Carney said: "We're going through a sluggish period in the economy".

"As a outcome, the household saving ratio fell from 3.3% to 1.7%, its lowest level since the series began in 1963".
But a raft of weaker data - as well as deep uncertainty about the impact of Brexit - called that view into question.
The policy makers said United Kingdom wages are expected to "remain subdued" for the rest of the year, while also cutting its salary growth for 2018 to 3% from 3.5% expected previously.
