The Bank of England's (BoE) Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) has announced it will maintain interest rates at their historic low of 0.5%.
The last change in the base rate was a drop from 1% to 0.5% on 5 March 2009.
The MPC has also voted to maintain the size of its asset purchase programme, at £375bn.
The bank has previously said it will not consider a rate rise until the unemployment rate falls below 7%.
