UK to announce new Bank of England governor around 1030 EDT

Britain's government is expected to announce the next governor of the Bank of England to parliament around 1030 EDT on Monday.

Parliament's website showed that a statement on the Bank of England was due after defense questions, which start at 0930 EDT and last around an hour.

Finance minister George Osborne is widely expected to be about to announce a successor to BoE Governor Mervyn King.
