The Bank of England announced Thursday that policymakers have voted again to keep its key lending rate at a record-low 0.50 percent, where it has stood since March 2009.
Britain's central bank added in a brief statement that it also opted to maintain the level of cash stimulus in the economy at 375 billion pounds. Both decisions were in line with market expectations. --AFP
