To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA) letter as part of the Written Answer by Lord Young of Cookham on 24 June (HL16212), whether the FCA was (1) informed, or (2) otherwise aware, that investors via Lendy Limited were creditors to a peer-to-peer platform; and whether such information could have been determined from the accounts of Lendy Limited.
This is a matter for the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which is operationally independent from Government. The question has been passed on to the FCA. The FCA will reply directly to Lord Myners by letter. A copy of the letter will be placed in the Library of the House.
