Playing catch up

"We (the monetary policy committee) would be better placed to head off the upside pressures on inflation which are now apparent if we had taken earlier policy action.

And the risk is that when policy tightening does start, it will be overdue and the MPC will be playing catch-up – which is not a good scenario for recovery prospects."

Andrew Sentance, external member of the Bank of England's monetary policy committee
