LMG also called on the government to secure early agreement on an implementation period to avoid a cliff edge on the day the UK leaves the EU.
On 10 March 2017, the House of Commons Library published a briefing paper on Brexit and financial services examining the views of banks and regulators on the road ahead.
On 14 March 2017, the Bank of England (BoE) announced it is reconfiguring reporting lines and has commissioned a review by its non-executive directors in light of the resignation of its deputy governor for markets and banking, and chief operating officer, Charlotte Hogg.
