The Treasury Select Committee has published an exchange of letters with FCA in which it noted that FCA had compromised the position of whistleblowers in the “SME alliance” by passing on details of their complaints to the subject of the complaints – which were banks. FCA said it had not treated the SME alliance as whistleblowers and had not been asked to protect confidentiality. The committee is concerned FCA does not understand the dilemmas whistleblowers face.
