The pound fell slightly against the dollar , reaching thus minmiuma yesterday . Possible driver of this decline was the dynamics of GBP / JPY, due to the increasing demand for the yen.

Little influenced by data that showed that the UK 's budget deficit in February widened more than expected . Note that net borrowing in the public sector , excluding the intervention has increased to 9.3 billion pounds in February , while in the same period last year borrowing was 6.5 billion pounds. In January 2014 net borrowing in the public sector showed a negative balance of 4.99 billion pounds. It was expected that the budget deficit will rise to 8.6 billion pounds.
