The Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) is likely to vote to pump at least an additional £25bn into the economy, reports The Times.
A poll of 62 City economists showed two thirds expect the MPC to vote to extend the £175bn scheme of quantitative easing (QE) at its rate meeting next week.
However, analysts were split over whether the limit would be raised by £25bn or £50bn, with £25bn winning by only one vote.
The Government and other Lloyds shareholders are due to see the bank amid fears that its crumbling share price has thrown the planned £11bn rights issue into jeopardy, says The Telegraph.
Lloyds shares have crashed 16.6% this week, closing down 3.84 at 80p on Thursday, as a result of the draconian state aid remedies demanded by Brussels of ING.
Lloyds is expected to question shareholders about their appetite and commitment to a rights issue in the face of a falling share price. The issue will be underwritten by a syndicate of investment banks, which are on course to share about £200m in fees, but the Government cannot allow the fund raising to fail for fear of the message that it would send about financial stability.
