Commenting specifically on the Banking Act 2009 (Restriction of Special Bail-in Provision, etc.) Order 2014 and the Banking Act 2009 (Mandatory Compensation Arrangements Following Bail-in) Regulations, the FMLC remarks and advises on technicalities which should be reflected in draft implementing secondary legislation.
