Bank of England governor Mark Carney has said that UK interest rates are likely to remain low “for some time”. His comments came as he spoke to MPs on the Treasury Committee.

George Osborne has kept fuel duty frozen for four years but is now desperately looking to reduce Britain’s budget deficit after a shock increase in October.
