Since the enactment of the new Banking Act in February 2009, with a new ‘Special Resolution Regime’ at its heart, the debate about how to reform the United Kingdom's financial regulatory and supervisory framework has intensified. A major catalyst for this was the publication of Lord Turner's ‘Review’ in March 2009, which was followed by the Government's White Paper on financial reform in July. The same month, the Conservative Party revealed its own White Paper on the subject, with both the Bank of England and the Financial Services Authority contributing to the debate at frequent intervals. The purpose of this article is to review and analyse these documents and viewpoints before coming to a conclusion about the most appropriate way forward on the domestic financial regulatory front.
