The election call means communication will be restricted

I didn't know this rule and I'm not sure they have it in too many places but Bank of England Governor Mark Carney and other BOE policymakers are banned from speaking until after the election, except in a few limited circumstances.

It goes into effect at midnight Saturday and there's nothing scheduled between then and now. An event scheduled for Haldane next week was cancelled.

One exception is the communication after the MPC meeting on May 11. The inflation report and press conference will take place as usual but Carney will surely steer far clear of the election.

Bloomberg has more.
