Inflation above target: Will the Bank of England have to act soon?
UK inflation stayed steady at 2.3% in March, following rises in recent months. The biggest month-on-month rises were in food, but the figure was held down by low air fares. Given that inflation is above the Bank of England's 2% target, does that mean that the Bank will want to act soon and raise rates? And was last summer's cut to 0.25% a mistake? Ed Bowsher was joined by Ruth Gregory, UK Economist at Capital Economics to discuss further.
