UK Parliament Creates New Sub-Committee on Financial Services Regulations06/23/2022The House of Commons Treasury Committee has announced the creation of a new sub-committee that will scrutinize financial services regulatory proposals and has published a report setting out the approach that Parliament will take to its scrutiny role now that the U.K. has left the EU. The new sub-committee will be called the Sub-Committee on Financial Services Regulations, and its members will initially be all the members of the Treasury Committee. The sub-committee has been set up because Parliament's examination of regulatory proposals is likely to increase when existing EU regulations are moved to the rulebooks of the U.K. regulators, resulting in an assessment by the regulators as to whether those rules are appropriate for the U.K. Among other things, the new Sub-Committee on Financial Services Regulations will have powers to "send for persons, papers and records", to seek and take evidence and report on its findings.
