Bank of England deputy governor Sir Jon Cunliffe has joined the debate over raising UK interest rates, indicating now is not the right time for a rise.
Governor Mark Carney has also said this is not the time for a rate adjustment.
But chief economist Andy Haldane has said he may join rate rise dissenters and back a hike later in the year.
Sir Jon told the BBC he wanted to see how inflation pressures evolved before deciding to raise interest rates from a record low 0.25%.
