Banking (Special Provisions) Bill — Independent audits — 21 Feb 2008 at 14:01

Viscount Slim voted with the majority (Content).

The Banking (Special Provisions) Bill enables the Treasury to transfer the property, rights and liabilities of a bank, building society or any other "authorised UK deposit-taker" to a corporate body of its choosing.[1]

The majority (in the House of Lords) voted to require that an independent audit be completed within three months of the transfer, and at least annually thereafter.[2]
