Key Quotes



"The Bank of England MPC minutes are released for the July meeting. Our base case scenario is a unanimous vote in favour of unchanged monetary policy. The BoE’s MPC should have had advanced notice of the upside surprise in June inflation, which was released a few weeks after the July meeting, which increases the risk of a dissenter."



"Nevertheless, we see August’s meeting, which coincides with new inflation forecasts and a fresh Quarterly Inflation Report, as more likely ground for hawkish dissenters. While no dissent and a largely unchanged message may be in the price, the GBP reaction may be modestly negative, as those anticipating a hawkish dissent and/or a more clear hint of a hawkish policy update with the August forecast round are disappointed."
