The BoE's policymakers are widely expected to leave rates at a record low 0.25 percent when they make their latest policy statement at 11:00 GMT. Haldane was previously known as one of the more dovish members of the nine-strong MPC, but he said in July that he expected to back a rate increase later this year after inflation picked up.
A rise in British interest rates is likely to be needed as the economy comes closer to running at full capacity and the Bank of England will debate when to do so "in the coming months", BoE Governor Mark Carney said on Wednesday. In a noticeable shift in emphasis since his last speech on June 20, Carney did not repeat his phrase from then that now was not the time to raise rates. Markets immediately priced in a greater chance of an early rate rise.
Financial markets have interpreted comments by the governor of the Bank of England as making a rise in interest rates more likely. Sterling shot up against the dollar as Mark Carney made his remarks at a European Central Bank event. It showed that outgoing MPC member Kristin Forbes was joined by Ian McCafferty and Michael Saunders in support of a rise in rates, from their record low 0.25%, to help tackle rising inflation.
A Bank of England policymaker surprised investors by breaking ranks and voting to raise interest rates and some others said it would not take much for them to follow suit, the BoE said on Thursday, signalling a potentially bigger split soon. Kristin Forbes, who is due to leave the BoE in June, cast the sole vote in favour of raising Bank Rate to 0.5 percent, the first Monetary Policy Committee split since last July.
