Bank of England Inflation Report, May 2005

The Bank of England published its May 2005 Inflation Report on 11 May. In the report the Bank said it expects CPI inflation to rise above the 2 pct target in the near term due to temporary factors before settling back to the 2 pct level over the two year horizon.

'The slowdown in retail spending is more than an erratic movement around the turn of the year,' Bank of England governor Mervyn King said in comments following the release of the central bank's quarterly economic projections.
