The British public’s expectations for inflation over the medium to long term, which are closely watched by the Bank of England, rose in October, according to a survey published on Monday.

Inflation expectations in five to 10 years’ time picked up to 3.5 percent from 3.3 percent in September, the survey by U.S. bank Citi and polling firm YouGov showed.


Public expectations for inflation in 12 months’ time were stable at 4.2 percent.

“We expect the changes to leave cumulative growth through 2024/5 worse off overall”.
