On 21 September 2010, the British Bankers' Association (BBA) published a paper on macro-prudential regulation, which is designed to stimulate debate on this issue. In the paper, the BBA sets out a model to demonstrate how macro-prudential policy could be adopted in the UK. The model is based on upgrading the Bank of England's Financial Stability Committee to a level similar to its Monetary Policy Committee. The paper also outlines the practical issues that could arise from implementing this model.
