HC Deb 13 December 1999 vol 341 cc74-5W
Mrs. Browning

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many domestic mortgages, underwritten with endowment policies, matured with a shortfall in the sum insured in (a) 1995, (b) 1996, (c) 1997, and (d) 1998. [102153]

Miss Melanie Johnson

This information could be obtained only from the endowment providers. To collect such information would entail disproportionate costs.

Mr. Kidney

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) if the Financial Services Authority will regulate buy-to-let mortgages; [102509]

(2) what is his timetable for announcing the outcome of his consultation on the regulation of mortgages. [102508]

Miss Melanie Johnson

Following consultation, the Treasury is in the process of reaching a decision on whether statutory regulation would best protect the interests of consumers and the Treasury will make an announcement in due course.
