The Bank of England is keeping its repo rate at 4% according to an annoucement just released.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the Bank's Monetary Policy Committee.
The minutes of the meeting are expected on 14 August.

The rate has remained unchanged since 8 November last year, when it was cut 0.5% to its current level.
