Sir John Kingman is conducting the review independently of my Department. I am therefore unable to speak for the review directly. However, I understand Sir John Kingman met the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) Stakeholder Advisory Panel on 26 June 2018, which included representatives from the Trades Union Congress (TUC).

On 6 June 2018, the independent Review of the FRC published a public call for evidence, inviting views and information from those affected by the FRC’s functions and effectiveness. Sir John Kingman would welcome responses to the call for evidence from a wide range of stakeholders, including interested trade unions, before 6 August. The Review Secretariat can be contacted at
