The governor of the Bank of England has told Sky News the economy is facing a “historically unprecedented” hit this year, just hours after announcing another £150bn stimulus package.
Andrew Bailey predicted economic growth would be 10 or 11% lower at the end of this year compared with last year, with a 2% hit due to the second wave of COVID-19.
The Bank is forecasting a negative impact from Brexit, even if a deal is reached.
