Banking Standards Commission

The commission has taken evidence on banking standards on 22 November 2012.

The commission questioned Sir Mervyn King, governor of the Bank of England; Paul Tucker, deputy governor and Andy Haldane, executive director of financial stability at the bank.

The commission was set up to consider and report on the standards and culture of the UK's banking sector, following the Libor rate-setting scandal.

Barclays received a fine of £290m ($450m) over the Libor affair earlier this year.

The inquiry was set up after a series of issues undermined public confidence in the financial sector, including the mis-selling of billions of pounds worth of payment protection insurance, and the mis-selling of a complex hedging insurance designed to protect small firms against rises in interest rates.
