Industry News | 09/07/19

The Treasury Committee has published letters sent from its chair, Nicky Morgan MP, to the Financial Conduct Authority’s chief executive Andrew Bailey and the National Crime Agency’s director general Lynne Owens, referring to allegations of potential criminal activity occurring within banks. The allegations are that home repossessions and other similar documents are not in fact being signed by the authorised signatory. Ms Morgan requests that they engage with the Bank Signature Forgery Campaign to review their evidence and investigate as appropriate.
