FSB reacts to Consumer Price Index

Commenting on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) which fell to -0.1% in September, John Allan, National Chairman for the Federation of Small Businesses, said:

“These latest figures confirm there is no pressing need to raise interest rates. Inflationary pressures remain weak, with little prospect of increasing rapidly in the immediate future. As well as low interest rates, small firms are benefiting from low commodity prices, particularly fuel, and rising real wages which is helping boost consumer spending power.”
