  • Sir John Vickers and members of the Independent Commission on Banking

Andrew Tyrie, Chair of the committee said:

"The Vickers proposals, if implemented, could have profound consequences for bank lending, economic growth and the competitiveness of the UK financial services sector.

It is vital the UK gets banking reform right. We need a vigorous debate on whether the Vickers proposals are the right way forward for the UK. This is why the Treasury Committee has called Sir John and his fellow commissioners to appear before us and defend their recommendations.

We have also asked the banks and other interested parties to submit written evidence to us ahead of our evidence session with Sir John. Those with views about the impact of the proposals should take this opportunity to speak up".
