MP demands fresh 'rigorous economic analysis' of Brexit
chair of the Treasury Committee, has written to Sir Tom Scholar, permanent
secretary of the Treasury, and Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England, to
request "up-to-date and rigorous analysis" of the economic impacts of the current
key scenarios for the UK’s future economic relationship with the EU.
“As the committee requested prior to the first meaningful vote, we have asked HM
Treasury and the Bank of England to, where necessary, provide updated analysis
of the economic impacts of the key scenarios for the UK’s future economic
relationship with the EU.
ensure that parliament is as informed as possible as it considers key decisions

high rates they pay. That may require more thought by government.
“Lending is a commercial
decision so the FCA cannot force firms to lend to these mortgage prisoners. But
once the regulator’s new rules have come into force, industry should be ready
to step up to help those borrowers that meet their risk profile.”
