HC Deb 20 January 1986 vol 90 cc14-5W
Dr. McDonald

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (1) if he will publish the date of the commencement of the inquiry into Lloyd's; and if he will give an assurance that the inquiry will be completed before the Financial Services Bill completes all its parliamentary stages;

(2) if he will publish in the Official Report the names of the members of the inquiry into Lloyd's.

Mr. Howard

While the inquiry will begin work as soon as possible, I have nothing to add to what my right hon. and learned Friend said in the House during the Second Reading debate on the Financial Services Bill on 14 January and in my reply to the hon. Member for Leeds, Central (Mr. Fatchett) on 15 January.
