Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill — Licensing of those Working in the Financial Sector — 11 Dec 2013 at 14:53
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted to require those carrying out certain functions in the financial sector to be licensed.
The majority of MPs voted against requiring those carrying out certain functions in the financial sector to be licensed.
The motion approved by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 41.
The rejected amendment 41 sought to insert a new clause titled Conduct of persons working in financial services sector which would have introduced a licensing regime aimed at raising standards of professionalism in the financial sector. The rejected scheme proposed would have required those "exercising controlled functions" to be approved and licensed.
