English rates slashed to lowest level in over 50 years

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

The Bank of England has slashed the official cash rate by 150 basis points in a bid to soften the impact of the “most serious disruption” to the global banking system in almost a century.

The reduction brings the British cash rate to just three per cent – the lowest level since 1955.

“There has been a very marked deterioration in the outlook for economic activity at home and abroad,” the Bank said in a statement released overnight.

The reduction follows a 50 basis point cut just last month.
