UK Cameron's EU vote plan hasn't hurt investment - finance minister
LONDON, July 11
LONDON, July 11 (Reuters) - Finance minister George Osborne said on Thursday he'd seen no evidence that Prime Minister David Cameron's promise to hold a referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union had deterred inward investment.
"Quite the contrary," said Osborne. He said separately that better information about the likely direction of Bank of England interest rates would help British home owners, adding he had already asked the BoE to consider giving more detailed guidance.
