Carney speech: UK economic activity has picked up sharply since election
Following the Bank of England's decision to keep its policy rate unchanged at 0.75%, Governor Mark Carney is delivering his remarks on the monetary policy outlook in a press conference.
"Question for the MPC is whether 2020 is starting with a bang."
"Survey data suggest UK economic activity has picked up sharply since election."
"It is early days, less a case of 'so far, so good', than 'so far, good enough'."
"Though global growth is picking up, caution is warranted."
