LONDON (Reuters) – The appointment process for the next governor of the Bank of England is on track and an appointment will be made this autumn, finance minister Sajid Javid said on Wednesday.

Asked if he was considering asking the incumbent governor, Mark Carney, to stay on past his Jan. 31 leaving date, Javid told ITV’s “Peston” show: “The appointment process is on track, and if you ask me if I’m considering, I’m not going to say.”

“The appointment will be made this autumn,” he said.
