England's recession deepening: BoE

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

Bank of England (BOE) governor Mervyn King has conceded that the UK is in a “deep recession” and indicated that the bank is likely to take further action to stimulate the economy.

The grave warnings came as the BOE released its Inflation Report, forecasting GDP to contract at an annual rate of 4 per cent in 2009 – a starkly larger contraction than the 0.75 to 1.25 per cent forecast by the British government in only November.

“The UK economy is in deep recession,” Mr King said.

"The projections ... imply that further easing in monetary policy may well be required.”

The BOE reduced its cash rate by 0.5 per cent to 1 per cent at its February meeting.
