  • CPI increased 0.6 per cent over the March quarter and 1.1 per cent over the year to March 31
  • Economists were generally tipping a 0.9 and 1.4 per cent rise for the quarter and year respectively
  • The weaker than expected price increases may allow the Reserve Bank to maintain its stimulus for longer
