“There has been some discussion in the United States about turning off the taps, that’s for them to decide. I think the lesson we can learn from all the discussion in the United States about the taper and the impact that has on markets is that good communication is necessary and I think that Governor Carney goes out of his way in his speeches to be clear about what’s guiding his decisions and what the MPC are looking at,” he added. The chancellor also said that policymakers must be vigilant on the housing market but he said that he didn’t think it posed an immediate threat to stability at present. There are some concerns that the UK housing market is at risk of overheating. Recent house price surveys have shown rising demand for properties and increasing prices with weak supply of new homes maintaining upward pressure on prices.

Avon, which has been struggling with declining sales, launched the technology in 2009 to improve interaction with its sales representatives. However, sales in Canada fell in the company’s most recent quarter due to disruption caused by the technology, known as service model transformation project. The company, which said in April it would slash 400 jobs, had 39,100 employees as of December 31, 2012. Avon expects to record a pretax non-cash charge of about $100 million (61 million pounds)-$125 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, reflecting the writedown of capitalized software, the company said in a regulatory filing on Wednesday. The company also expects to record about $35 million-$45 million in charges before taxes, mainly related to the job cuts. Avon said it expects to record about $35 million of the charges in the fourth quarter of 2013 and the remainder before the end of 2014. The company said it expects to realize annualized savings of about $40 million-$45 million before taxes from the job cuts.
