This is a matter for the operationally independent Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

This report was provided to the FCA and the police at the time, in 2014.

The FCA is currently investigating the extent and nature of the knowledge of the discovery of misconduct within HBOS Impaired Assets office in Reading and HBOS’ communications with the regulator after the initial discovery of the misconduct.
