The Bank of England (BoE) has kept the interest rate at 0.5%.
The rate has remained unchanged since March 2009.
The rate decision is the first since Mark Carney took over as Governor of the Bank of England on Monday.
The Bank also left the scale of its quantitative easing (QE) programme to boost the money supply unchanged at £375 billion.
