Carney Says Bank of England Is ‘Absolutely Independent’

Mark Carney hit back against criticism of the Bank of England’s commentary on the European Union referendum debate, insisting that the institution is “absolutely independent.”

Asked on whether he has overstepped the mark with the BOE’s commentary, Carney said: “absolutely not.”
