Bailey expects lower jobless peak


Bank of England governor Andrew Bailey has said unemployment is likely to peak at a lower level than previous estimates, with the Chancellor’s decision to extend furlough until September likely to limit the effect of the pandemic on jobs. Mr Bailey told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I think it’s very helpful that the furlough scheme is now projected to extend beyond the end of the restrictions by a month or two, which should help to smooth that transition.” He warned, however, that “expecting a transition without some rise in unemployment I’m afraid is, is probably unlikely.” While the Bank’s most recent forecasts, which were made before the furlough scheme was extended, put the peak in unemployment at 7.5%, Mr Bailey said: “I would expect the next forecast to show the peak in unemployment will be lower.”
