A jump in food prices was the main driver of July’s rise in CPI inflation, and the overshoot of the MPC’s forecast.

The core CPI continued to rise quickly, but recent falls in commodity prices point to slower increases ahead.

Lower petrol prices will mean CPI inflation undershoots the MPC’s forecast in August; a 25bp hike is on the table.
