Summary

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) accelerated to 2.9 per cent in May — up from the 2.7 per cent rise in April. This was above the consensus view of 2.7 per cent and is already outpacing the Bank of England’s May forecast which suggested that inflation would peak at 2.8 per cent in Q4 2017.

The Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH, not a National Statistic) rose 2.7 per cent in May 2017 compared with the same month a year ago, and up from the 2.6 per cent rise in April. This is the sharpest rise since April 2012.
