Opposition Day — Public Inquiry Into Professional Standards in the Banking Industry — Libor — 5 Jul 2012 at 17:05
The majority of MPs voted against a public inquiry into the professional standards of the banking industry, covering the Libor scandal, fraud and collusion reporting inter-bank interest rates.
The motion rejected by the majority of MPs was:
- in the opinion of this House, the Government should commission an independent, forensic, judge-led public inquiry under the Inquiries Act 2005 into the culture and professional standards of the banking industry, to be completed within 12 months, to be paid for by the banks, and that any such inquiry should provide an interim report and recommendations, by the end of 2012, covering the lessons learnt from the scandal of manipulation of the LIBOR.
