The Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) has voted to keep base rate at its historic low of 0.50% for the 51st consecutive month.
The MPC also agreed to keep the Government's quantitative easing (QE) programme total amount at £375 billion.
Minutes released by the MPC last month showed three members of the committee voted in favour of injecting a further £25 billion into the UK economy via QE, but were met with opposition and outnumbered by the remaining six members.
Base rate has stayed at 0.50% since March 2009, when the first phase of QE was introduced by the Government to boost the economy.
