BANK OF ENGLAND CONSIDERS NEGATIVE INTEREST RATES

People could see their savings hit or face new charges on their current accounts after a senior official at the Bank of England proposed the “extraordinary” measure of imposing negative interest rates on banks.

Although several other central banks have experimented with negative interest rates in recent years - most notably Sweden and Denmark - this is the first time the idea has been raised by a Bank of England official.
