The Treasury Committee has formally published its report setting out its main concerns about the Financial Services Bill (FS Bill) and suggesting some remedies. The key concerns include:

  • a statutory duty for the Court of the Bank of England (BoE) to undertake retrospective reviews of BoE’s performance;
  • making competition an objective of the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA); and
  • ensuring Parliament can request retrospective reviews of the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) work.
