|FSB urges interest rate caution after inflation rise|
|Tuesday, 12 April 2016|
Commenting on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) which rose to 0.5% in March, Mike Cherry, National Chairman at the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), said: “Small firms are currently dealing with a raft of challenges, including the National Living Wage which came into effect this month, driving up costs and driving down modest profit. A recent FSB survey  showed small business confidence hovering at its lowest level since 2013. Despite inflation edging up last month, our members welcome this ongoing period of low inflation which has helped to keep other operating costs manageable.
“Given today’s figures and the challenging economic outlook, we urge the Bank of England to remain cautious when considering whether to raise interest rates at its meeting later this week.”
