Opposition Day — [10th Allotted Day]: The Economy (18 Nov 2015)

Geraint Davies: The Labour party’s spending plans were all agreed to by the Conservatives. We introduced regulation through the FSA and greater freedom for the Bank of England. The Conservatives opposed greater regulation, yet the lack of regulation led to the awful situation we are in now.

Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [HL] — Committee (2nd Day)11.39 am (11 Nov 2015)

Baroness Kramer: My Lords, in response to the noble Lord, Lord Carrington, of course the FSA failed in its task as the problem developed over the several years leading up to the financial crisis of 2007-08.

Lord Carrington of Fulham: successful is because foreign investors and institutions have confidence in our tough but flexible financial regulations.

Lord Rooker: ...regulations which oversee both world trade and the Codex Alimentarius, it was overwhelmingly in our interests to stay.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Credit Unions and Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Bill: Second Stage (6 Oct 2015)

Trevor Lunn: ...while financial institutions have collapsed all around them, they have steered a steady course through the whole thing and are much to be admired. I remember saying a couple of years ago, when the FSA took over control of regulation of credit unions, that they should be careful what they wish for because they might find that the FSA operates with a very heavy hand. I think that that has...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Breast Milk (22 Jul 2015)

Lord Prior of Brampton: The experience of the Food Standards Agency (FSA) is that the sale of breast milk is centred on a reasonably small number of enterprises, selling direct to the final consumer on a limited scale.

Mike Gapes: ...Has he seen the press statement issued by the Syrian Coalition today, in which it denounces a breakaway group, “a so-called military council” that is being formed by “members of the dissolved FSA Supreme Military Council”, as “just an attempt to mislead public opinion”?
