Britain is “a little bit” better placed to cope with possible interest rate increases, Bank of England Deputy Governor Ben Broadbent said on Friday, a day after the central bank said borrowing costs may have to rise more than markets expect.
“I think there may be some possibility for interest rates to go up a little bit,” Broadbent told BBC radio.
“One shouldn’t overdo this. If and when it happens there will be a lot of talk about the first rate rise since ‘x’. But it’s just a rate rise and we got perfectly used to rate rises of this size in the past.”
