Emergency action by bank of england amid uk economic turmoil

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Emergency action by Bank of England amid UK economic turmoil” – below is their description.

As the economic storm clouds over the UK darkened further still, the Bank of England today staged a dramatic intervention – saying it will start buying up government debt in an effort to stabilise markets and protect pension funds.

The surging cost of borrowing, sparked last week by the Chancellor’s tax-cutting plans, had earlier drawn a stinging rebuke from the IMF – but the government says it’s sticking to its guns, although departments will be asked to identify ‘spending efficiencies’.

Labour says parliament should be recalled so the prime minister is held to account over the crisis.
