In October 2008 and February 2009, the Statistics Authority set out its plans for future Monitoring Reports, including its intention to prepare and publish a Report on the Communication of measurements of inflation and consumer prices. 1

The Statistics Authority will consider what further steps might be taken in the preparation of a Monitoring Report in this area in the light of the outcome of this Assessment process.
