Mark Carney on Jane Austen banknotes and women in Bank of England

24 July 2013 Last updated at 18:46 BST

The new governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, has unveiled the design of the next £10 note, which features the author Jane Austen.

In April, the Bank announced that the image of Sir Winston Churchill would be put on the £5 note from 2016, replacing social reformer Elizabeth Fry and prompting a high-profile campaign against the prospect of no female characters on the currency.

Austen will replace Charles Darwin, probably in 2017.

Mr Carney spoke to economics editor Stephanie Flanders about women on banknotes and within the Bank of England.
