Bank of England Governor Mark Carney has made it clear that he’s had enough of questions about his future.

“I think we’ve all had enough of that saga so let’s not reopen it,” Mr. Carney said Thursday when asked during a news conference whether he would consider extending his stay at the bank.

Mr. Carney has been dogged for months by rumours and speculation over how much longer he would remain governor. He sought to end the debate Monday by saying he would stay until June, 2019. That’s one year longer than the five-year commitment he made when he started in 2013, but still two years short of the eight-year term originally requested by the government.
