RPI is the familiar, long-established, measure of cost-of-living used in wage agreements, commercial leases and index-linked gilts.
RPI has overstated inflation since 2010. The Office for National Statistics no longer treats RPI as an "official statistic".
In 2017 John Pullinger National Statistician said "The RPI is not a good measure of inflation and does not realistically have the potential to become one".
