This report contains the oral and written evidence given to the House of Commons Treasury Committee for the report on financial regulation, responding to the Government's initial proposals for radical change to economic policy-making and the way in which financial services are regulated in the United Kingdom. The Government proposes to give a Financial Policy Committee (FPC), based in the Bank of England, power to monitor the system to ensure financial stability, and to take action when that stability is threatened. This is a further shift of powers for economic policymaking away from Government. There are sound reasons for insulating economic policy decisions from short-term political pressures. However, 'financial stability' is a very broad concept, and may be hard to define in practice. The Government needs to give a great deal more information on what it considers constitutes financial stability and to demonstrate that due thought has been given to it.
