Financial Secretary to the Treasury Launches Consultation on the Implementation of Financial Regulation Reforms Announced at Mansion House
Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Mark Hoban MP, today launched the Government’s consultation on the implementation of reforms to financial regulation.
The document sets out detailed proposals for reform of the financial services sector, first announced by the Chancellor in his Mansion House speech on 16th June 2010.
The Chancellor set out plans to overhaul the system of Financial Regulation giving the Bank of England powers over macro prudential regulation through a newly established Financial Policy Committee (FPC), which will be established on an interim basis from Autumn 2010.
The consultation invites views on this proposal in addition to plans to create:
A new prudential regulator under the control of the Bank of England headed by a new Deputy Governor (the first of whom will be current Financial Services Authority Chief Executive, Hector Sants), which will be responsible for supervising the safety and soundness of individual financial firms.
A new Consumer Protection and Markets Authority (CPMA) to act as a single integrated regulator focussed on conduct in financial markets. Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Mark Hoban said:
"The Coalition Government is delivering on its commitment to reform the financial system, to avoid repeating the mistakes of the recent financial crisis and to ensure that taxpayers are protected. Today is a crucial milestone in our programme of reform. To take this forward, we would welcome the input of everyone who has an interest, including regulators and the regulated community, to ensure that we get the design right.”
