LONDON (Reuters) - Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey said on Friday that the British central bank could deal with the fast rise in inflation without damaging the economy, but the path was a narrow one.

Asked at an International Monetary Fund event in Washington whether the BoE could pull off a "soft landing" for the economy, Bailey said: "Yes, but as I said it is a narrow path."

"You can walk down a narrow path ... but there is a lot of uncertainty around it which is why, I think, it is very clear to me, at each meeting we have we are going to have to come back to this judgement and see how it develops," he added.
