question text To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Young of Cookham on 19 June (HL16113), what discussions they have had with the Financial Conduct Authority about the case for that body to conduct an investigation into its decision to authorise Lendy when it had concerns about that firm’s compliance with minimum regulatory standards and the adequacy of disclosure to lenders; and what assessment they have made of the case for any such investigation to include whether any investors in Lendy (1) suffered losses as a result of that authorisation, and (2) are entitled to compensation from the FCA or another institution. more like this

answer text <p>The government’s priority has been to ensure a smooth and orderly withdrawal from the EU with a deal as soon as possible. The government has reached agreement with the EU on an extension until October 31<sup>st</sup> at the latest, with the option to leave earlier as soon as a deal is ratified. However, “No Deal” remains the legal default at the end of the extension period if a deal cannot be reached. As a responsible government we have been preparing for this possibility for almost three years to minimise any disruption in the event of no deal. The Treasury and the Bank of England together have all the tools of fiscal and monetary policy available to us, including the fiscal headroom the Chancellor has held in reserve.</p><p> </p> more like this
