Dear Lord Eatwell
You have my strong support in your criticism of the Finance Bill and I am
especially concerned that without proper parliamentary scrutiny the regulator
will continue a well-trodden and dangerous path that will disadvantage the very
people they are supposed to protect.The attached letter read more relates specifically to the mayhem that was caused as a result of Margaret Cole’s ill-judged, intemperate and inaccurate remarks regarding traded life policies, but at the root of it is my very real concern that the regulator should be held to account for such ill-considered actions.
You may be interested to hear that this letter was sent to Andrew Tyrie MP, Peter
Lilley MP, George Freeman MP, Chloe Smith MP, Simon Wright MP, every member of
the Treasury Select Committee and every member of the Finance Bill Committee. I
had one reply from my own constituency MP Simon Wright.
