England: Interest rate slashed to 2%

The Bank of England has cut the interest rate by 1 percentage point to 2 per cent in a move that will bring some respite to retailers.

The cut brings the interest rate to its lowest level for more than half a century.

Business leaders had called for the slash in rates to prevent the economic crisis worsening.The cut comes on top of last month's dramatic reduction, when the Bank of England slashed the interest rate by 1.5 percentage points to 3 per cent; the biggest cut the bank has made since 1981.Since the bank was founded in 1694, the bank's rate has never fallen below 2 per cent.

The reduction comes as retailers battle to draw in cash-strapped consumers in the run-up to Christmas.
