Minutes reveal QE vote split
19th July 2012

Spencer Dale and Ben Broadbent were the dissenting voices at the meeting which discussed increasing the Bank of England's quantitative easing programme by as much as £75bn.
For the second consecutive month, the MPC also considered cutting the base rate below its historic low of 0.5% but members decided further QE offered better prospects of success.
