Sustainable Communities Act 2007 (Amendment) Bill: Clause 6 — Disclosure of financial assistance to the Bank of England (8 Apr 2010)

Ian Pearson: I shall briefly respond to the points that have been made during this debate. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Thurrock (Andrew Mackinlay) about clause 8 and disagree with the hon. Member for Stone (Mr. Cash) and his comments on it. I agree that dropping the clause will not prevent the Financial Services Authority from engaging in international forums, but the fact that it has not...

Sustainable Communities Act 2007 (Amendment) Bill: Clause 1 — Council for Financial Stability (8 Apr 2010)

Ian Pearson: I welcome the Opposition's support for the amendments. I am not surprised by it, given that the deal has been agreed. We still believe strongly that the council for financial stability is an important and necessary addition to financial regulation in this country, but given where we stand today, I appreciate the hon. Gentleman's support for the other clauses in the Bill, which I hope will...

Sustainable Communities Act 2007 (Amendment) Bill: Clause 6 — Disclosure of financial assistance to the Bank of England (8 Apr 2010)

Ian Pearson: As I mentioned a minute ago, as a result of discussions with the official Opposition via the usual channels, the second group of amendments will remove clause 8, which would provide for a new statutory duty imposed on the FSA to promote international regulation and supervision, and clauses 18 to 25, which would allow for group representative action in the courts for people with similar...

Sustainable Communities Act 2007 (Amendment) Bill: Clause 6 — Disclosure of financial assistance to the Bank of England (8 Apr 2010)

Ian Pearson: I heard the hon. Gentleman mention that yesterday, but I have not had time to check it out, so I must pass on answering that question. On the general point, however, I do not believe that the Government's financial interventions to recapitalise the banks and the Bank of England's action to provide liquidity to the banking system have been anything other than absolutely necessary to ensure the...

Sustainable Communities Act 2007 (Amendment) Bill: Clause 1 — Council for Financial Stability (8 Apr 2010)

Ian Pearson: The amendments remove from the Bill the clauses relating to the council for financial stability-that is, clauses 1 to 4-and the reference to those clauses in clause 38. As my noble Friend Lord Myners set out in another place yesterday and again this morning, given the limited amount of time remaining in this Parliament, the Government have agreed with the official Opposition through the usual...

Business of the House: Clause 9 — Duration of Act (7 Apr 2010)

Ian Pearson: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Denton and Reddish (Andrew Gwynne) on his Bill, which is likely to be very effective in providing relief to developing countries and in ensuring that they are not exposed in future to what is frequently called vulture fund activity. I pay great tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for...

Business of the House: Clause 9 — Duration of Act (7 Apr 2010)

Friend the Member for Northampton, North (Ms Keeble) and the hon. Member for South-West Hertfordshire (Mr. Gauke). Given your strictures, Mr. Speaker, it would not be right to explain for the third time why the clause is...

Ian Pearson: I assure the hon. Gentleman that the Treasury will look at all the available evidence on the potential market impact of the measure before seeking an affirmative resolution to give it permanent effect, or to extend it for a further year. Clearly, our aim during the Committee stage was to respond to the concerns expressed by those who argued that the legislation could have an impact on future...
