HC Deb 27 July 1978 vol 954 cc870-1W
Mr. Cant

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make a statement on the dispute between the EEC and the Bank of England over the question of the imposition of a system of statutory control over United Kingdom financial institutions.

Mr. Denzil Davies

I understand that the Bank of England is in discussion with the EEC Commission about the applicability of the provisions of the Treaty of Rome to the present methods of regulating the relations between banks and brokers in the United Kingdom. Those discussions are not vet concluded.
