Appointment hearings, Session 2013-14

The Treasury Committee has established the practice of holding hearings with persons appointed to the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the Bank of England and other significant bodies and reporting on those hearings. This practice enhances the transparency of the appointment process and increases the level of information available to the public and to Parliament.

Published oral and written evidence of previous appointment hearings dating from September 2010 to June 2013 are available on the other work webpage.
