LONDON (Reuters) - The Bank of England could potentially need to cut interest rates to boost demand if Britain faces repeatedly extended Brexit deadlines and a slowing global economy, BoE policymaker Gertjan Vlieghe said on Friday.

Speaking at Thomson Reuters, Vlieghe also said that in a 'no deal' Brexit scenario, the BoE could need to cut interest rates to a record low below the 0.25% they sank to after 2016's referendum to leave the European Union.
