October Update: Financial Services

4 October 2018

What's on the agenda this month

by Jo Hall, Financial Services Policy Executive

October has kicked off to a busy start with Labour, Conservative and SNP holding their party conferences.

DeHavilland has produced extensive coverage over conference season, with summaries of the major speeches and fringe events including MoneySavingExpert.com’s ‘The mortgage ticking timebomb’ at the Conservative Conference and the ‘Brexit and Financial Services’ event at the Labour conference. Read our Conference Round-up briefing.

With conference season now coming to a close, Parliament is set to return on the 9th October with financial services high on the agenda.

Conservative MP William Wragg is to lead a debate on the investigation of business banking fraud on the 9th, whilst fellow Conservative MP Paul Masterton will introduce a ten minute rule motion on Collective Defined Contribution Pension Schemes on the 17th.

Committees will also be busy this month, with the Treasury Committee set to continue its inquiry into economic crime and the BEIS Committee to examine small businesses and productivities.

October will close with a surprise early Autumn Budget on the 29th, moved from its traditional November slot to avoid clashes with the final stages of the Brexit talks.
