Mark Carney will have his chance to put speculation about his future as Bank of England governor to rest when he faces lawmakers on Tuesday.
The U.K. parliament’s Treasury Committee’s session is billed as seeking evidence on BOE policy and its most recent economic forecasts, but it’s Carney’s own future that is currently dominating the headlines. The Canadian is in talks about staying in the role beyond his planned departure date of June next year, according to a report by the BBC on Monday.
A government spokesman on Monday played down the prospect, saying Carney still plans to leave his role in 2019, and the BOE and the Treasury declined to comment.
