4:45 AM ET Tue, 25 Oct 2011

Testifying in front of the treasury select committee, Bank of England Governor Mervyn King detailed the central bank's rational for introducing a second bout of money easing. "The volatility did not dampen down, we did not see a reversal of the asset price movements, so we followed through and took the decision in October, which was unanimous, to resume the asset purchasing program," he said.
