Data from the Office of National Statistics today show that the UK Consumer Price Index for September remained static at 1.8%, the same as recorded in August.

Downward pressure on the CPI came from tariff reductions in household utilities and slower increases in the price of clothing and footwear compared to a year go.  Upward pressure was exerted from increases in the price of food and non-alcoholic beverages.

Retail Price Index inflation fell to 3.9% in September, down from 4.1% in the previous month.  This fall was prompted by static mortgage interest payments as compared to a year go when lenders passed on a Bank of England bank rate increase.
