ITV News Economics Editor Richard Edgar on the Governor of the Bank of England's comments:
The schoolboy who stabbed Leeds teacher Ann Maguire to death at Corpus Christi High School will appeal his sentence tomorrow.
A panel of judges headed by the Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas will hear the application on behalf of 16-year-old Will Cornick, who stabbed Mrs Maguire, 61, seven times from behind as she taught a Spanish class at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds in April last year.
The appeal relates to the least time Cornick must spend in custody before he is eligible to apply for parole.
Whilst passing his sentence back in November, Mr Justice Coulson warned Cornick, who was 15 at the time, that he might never be released from prison as he passed sentence at Leeds Crown Court.
