London First response: Detail of implementation of Vickers recommendations crucial

Commenting on Government’s response to the Independent Commission on Banking

Baroness Jo Valentine, Chief Executive of London First, said:

“It’s reassuring to see that Government has listened to international banks rather than just endorsing all recommendations. However, the detail of implementation will be critical, and we must ensure the UK remains an attractive home for financial services or jobs and investment will go elsewhere.”
