Question for Cabinet Office

UIN 79394, tabled on 22 November 2021

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, when he plans to respond to the letter dated 31 August 2021 from Lord Pickles on behalf of the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments in respect of Lord Hammond; and whether he plans to take steps in response to that Committee's findings in respect of Lord Hammond and OakNorth bank.

Answered on

25 November 2021

Lord True responded to the letter from the Chair of the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments on 25 November, noting the Committee’s findings in respect of Lord Hammond. The Government has carefully considered this matter and the letter sets out in full its reasoning that, although we concur with the Committee’s conclusion, we do not believe further sanctions should be taken given the particular circumstances of this case.
