In particular, the MPC is not to aim to achieve 2A per cent on average over some particular time period. Crude averaging over a rigid period would be arbitrary and unhelpful in assessing the MFC's performance. Any economy can at some point be subject to external events or temporary difficulties which can cause inflation to depart from the desired level. Thus attempts to meet the inflation target on average could lead to sharp, destabilising policy changes towards the end of the period covered or, alternatively, could mean that the MPC would aim for something other than 2A per cent at the end of the period.
