Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England, delivers his address to business leaders on Wednesday in Nottingham, England. Mr Carney’s first policy speech as Bank of England governor is his chance to address investor doubts that he can keep interest rates on hold at a record low until at least late 2016. During his speech, Mr Carney said officials were ready to add stimulus if investor expectations for higher interest rates rose too far and undermined the recovery.
