LONDON, June 26 (Reuters) - Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said the BoE would only factor the possibility of a no-deal Brexit into its economic forecasts if Britain's next prime minister decides to leave the European Union without a transition agreement.
"In the event that the policy of the government were to switch, the forecast of the Bank of England would switch accordingly," Carney told lawmakers on Wednesday.
