This updated diary has been compiled as a selective record of events which may be relevant to interpretation of the monetary statistics. The diary does not generally include events which are evident from the monetary statistics themselves or are easily visible elsewhere in official statistics. It is mainly focused on announcements of Bank Rate changes and Quantitative Easing measures, other announcements relating to liquidity support schemes during this period, and certain key events related to individual UK institutions. Rate changes are shown at the time of their announcement, which may at times differ slightly from the implementation dates published elsewhere.
The diary may not be comprehensive or precise, especially for earlier years. We should welcome being informed of any notable errors or omissions (email DSD_Editor). Please also see the archived diary of events over 1960 to 2006, along with the Bank’s news and minutes for more recent events.
