Bank of England Briefing

April 20, 2020 at 9:30 AM- 10:30 AM

The people of the UK are making extraordinary efforts to limit the health impact of Covid-19.

The Bank of England has taken a number of actions to help firms and households manage through the uncertainty created by Covid-19 and reduce economic harm. The measures have included cutting interest rates and taking steps to ensure our financial system is robust and resilient. These sit alongside broader actions taken by the Government to support businesses and households.

The Bank’s actions have been informed by the insights gathered by our network of Agents, who speak to hundreds of contacts – from small businesses and community organisations to large global companies – across the UK. Their conversations with you through this difficult time have played an important role in gathering information about developments in all sectors of the economy and feedback on our policy actions.

The Bank would like to invite you to a briefing, which is aimed at businesses and community organisations across the UK, on Monday 20 April from 9:30am-10:30am.

The conference call will be hosted by Ben Broadbent, Deputy Governor for Monetary Policy, and Andy Haldane, Chief Economist.  Ben and Andy will outline the measures the Bank has taken and will answer some of your questions.

Please kindly note that registration will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please register by clicking this link. All contacts who have received this invite will receive a recording of the session following the event.


You are invited to submit questions in advance of the session by e-mailing [email protected] by Thursday 16 April.  Ben and Andy will address your questions on the call, either directly or grouped under a theme if there are many similar questions. The questions will be anonymised on the call.
