In November 2006 we published three Reports on the
theme of Financial inclusion, as follows:

advice and insurance (published on 16 November 2006, as House
of Commons Paper No. 848-I);
Report of Session 2005-06, "Banking the unbanked":

On 28 March 2007 we received a combined Government

Appendix 1 to this Special Report. On 22 February 2007 we received
a response by the Financial Services Authority to the same Reports,
which is published as Appendix 2 to this Special Report. We are
also publishing in Appendix 3 to this Special Report a letter
from the Chairman of the Banking Code Standards Board which we
received on 17 January.
