By Howard Schneider and Jonathan Spicer JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (Reuters) - Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said on Saturday that a slowdown in China's economy could push down further on inflation but it did not change, for now, the central bank's position on when and how it might increase interest rates. Carney, speaking at an annual U.S. central banking conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, reiterated his view that the recovery in Britain's economy "will likely put the decision as to when to start the process of gradual monetary policy normalization into sharper relief around the turn of this year." That comment echoed one he made in mid-July, before global financial markets took a hit in recent days over concerns about the health of China's economy.
