BOE’s Fisher Gives Outlook for Inflation, Sun Reports

The Bank of England said Markets Director Paul Fisher stated that the central bank forecasts inflation to stay around 2 percent for the next two to three years, correcting comments reported by the Sun newspaper.

“We are very seldom going to be actually at 2 percent, we’ll always be a bit away and trying to bring it back,” the London-based central bank cited Fisher as saying in an interview with the newspaper published today. “So our forecast has inflation within this sort of range -- either a bit above or a bit below -- for the next two or three years.”

The Bank of England issued a correction to Fisher’s reported remarks on inflation in an e-mailed statement.

“Inflation has come down from 5.2 percent to 2.5 percent,” Fisher also told the Sun, according to the article published today in the paper copy. “We expected it to be a bit lower by now, but there’s been a bit of stickiness in world energy prices,” the newspaper cited him as saying.

The policy maker added that the U.K.’s third-quarter gross domestic product number will be “very strong,” the Sun reported.
