The Prime Minister has given his reaction to the appointment of Mark Carney as the next Governor of the Bank of England:
“I am delighted that Mark Carney has accepted the job as the next Governor of the Bank of England.
“He takes up the role at an important time, as we put the Bank of England back at the heart of financial regulation, so that we do not repeat the mistakes of the past.
“His distinguished record on economic policy, the high regard of his international peers and the leadership he has shown on the global economic crisis make him the exceptional person for this job. I very much look forward to working with him from next summer.”
