The budget, the FSA and ‘stress tests’

On the eve of the emergency budget, Banking Weekly looks at the implications of the government’s plan to raise £3bn through a bank levy.

Also up for discussion is the break up of the FSA and the transference of regulatory power over to the Bank of England.

Lastly, the pod tackles the question of the ‘stress tests’ for banks, agreed by the 27 EU member states last week.

Presented by Anousha Sakoui, with guests, Brooke Masters, the FT’s chief regulation correspondent, Matthew Vincent, editor of FT Money and David Oakley the FT’s capital markets correspondent.
