On September 18, HM Treasury published a consultation paper on the powers to be made available to the Financial Policy Committee (FPC) to perform its macro-prudential regulatory role within the Bank of England under the regulatory regime being introduced under the Financial Services Bill currently before Parliament.

It will have powers of recommendation and powers of direction to help achieve its objectives.
