The long awaited Civil Liability is set to return to have its Second Reading in the House Lords on the 24th April, where there is set to be much debate over proposed changes to the calculation of the discount rate. 

Meanwhile, financial services is set to be a hot topic in the Commons, with the Chancellor and his ministers set to take questions from MPs on the 17th April, whilst Labour MP Martin Whitfield is to lead a backbench debate on a motion on redress for victims of banking misconduct and the FCA following the RBS GRG scandal. 

The Treasury Committee is also set to be busy in April, after launching several inquiries on economic crime and VAT at the end of March.
