Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Food Hygiene Rating Bill: Consideration Stage (29 June 2015) See 4 other results from this debate

Simon Hamilton: ...Committee's work on this group of amendments. I concur with all the comments made, particularly around the online publication of ratings. We are absolutely right to change the requirement on the FSA to publish on a website to a requirement to publish online. In so doing, we are future-proofing the legislation and the scheme because of the need to publish the rating on a website selling...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [HL] — Second Reading (10 June 2015)

Baroness Barker: ...the first debate on the subject of its effectiveness probably took place in around 1854. Every regulator is subject from time to time to criticism from the bodies that it regulates. The CQC and the FSA have their critics, but none draws fire like the Charity Commission. There are those who find the commission immensely helpful and who value its reports and guidance. There are also those...

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Housing (10 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

James Cartlidge: ...from the Financial Services Authority—huge reams of regulation and gobbledegook. Every six months we had to submit a capital adequacy return. Northern Rock would have been doing the same thing, so why could not the FSA have spotted what was happening? It was an incredible failure to regulate banking. Let us not forget that 1998 to 2007 was the most unprecedented period of growth in...

Viscount Trenchard: ...supervisory authorities should be the regulators for the eurozone, and the UK’s PRA and FCA should be restored to their deserved status as global-level regulators equivalent to the SEC of the United States and Japan’s FSA. I ask my noble friend to confirm that powers to regulate the City will be among those which the Government will ensure are returned to our own national...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance and Personnel: Corporation Tax: Credit Unions (9 March 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Robin Swann: May I return to the main subject? I declare an interest as a member of Slemish n' tha Braid Credit Union. The FSA undertook a review of the powers and abilities of credit unions in GB within the last two to three years. Does the Minister see any opportunity for the powers that were devolved to credit unions in the rest of the UK coming to Northern Ireland credit unions?

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Backbench Business — Equitable Life (26 February 2015)

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 February 2015)

Guy Opperman: ...authorities to encourage greater competition. Secondly, having passed that legislation, notwithstanding Labour opposition, we tackled the length and complexity of the authorisation process. Setting up a new bank traditionally took years and a huge amount of money. We all want greater competition, and for the FSA to abbreviate the process—in planning, this is done through a...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Backbench business — Animal Welfare (Non-stun Slaughter) (23 February 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

George Eustice: ...minute 20 seconds. That is still quite a lot of time, but it is why France has a cut-off point of 1 minute 30 seconds, after which a post-cut stun is required. At the other extreme, I have met former staff of the FSA who have told me that they have seen shechita abattoirs do this particularly effectively, with the animal collapsing within 10 seconds. It is also clear that in many of these...
