By Alistair Smout GLASGOW Scotland (Reuters) - The Bank of England is weighing up conflicting data on Britain's labour market as it prepares to start raising interest rates off their record low of the last five years, BoE Governor Mark Carney said on Wednesday. Britain's economy is now back to its size of before the financial crisis but the mismatch between strong jobs growth and weak pay was posing a challenge for the central bank, Carney said. "As the economy normalises, Bank Rate will need to start to rise in order to achieve the inflation target," he said in a speech to business leaders in Glasgow. "But the MPC (Monetary Policy Committee) has no pre-set course and the timing of any increases in interest rates will be determined by the data." Earlier on Wednesday, the BoE said its policymakers discussed at their July meeting if there was a case for an early interest rate rise but were held back in part by pay growth that was strikingly low given Britain's strong job creation.
