The Chancellor set the remit of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) at Budget 2012, to target 2% inflation, as measured by the 12-month increase in the Consumer Prices Index.

The Office for National Statistics is responsible for producing and publishing inflation data, which can be found on its website1.
