The article focuses on the criticisms of the Members of the Parliament (MP) concerning the government's proposed reforms of the tripartite system in Great Britain. It highlights the report of the Treasury select committee, which determines the confusion among the Bank of England, the Financial Services Authority, and the Treasury, on who will be held responsible for the systemic oversight. The report also urges regulators to stop ruling a Glass-Steagall approach to banking regulation.
