The clause provides for the court to continue being chaired by a non-executive. Although, under the Bank of England Act 1998, the Governor chairs the Banks court of directors, since 2003 the Governor has delegated the chairmanship of court to one of the non-executive directors. This change formalises in legislation what has been practice since 2003. It is a sensible provision, which formalises the Banks current practice and is fully supported by the Bank of England. I hope that the hon. Gentleman will be happy for the clause to stand part of the Bill.
