Letter from Chair of the Committee to
Chris Wiscarson, Chief Executive, Equitable Life Assurance Society,
20 September 2010
As you may know, during the Second Reading debate
on the Equitable Life (Payments) Bill the Chair of the Public
Administration Select Committee, Bernard Jenkin, announced that
the Committee intends to hold a further, very short inquiry into
the Government's response to the Ombudsman's recommendation on
Equitable Life as soon as the House returns in October in order
to elucidate the exact differences between the Ombudsman's recommendations,
Sir John Chadwick's report and the Government's view.
The Committee would welcome a short written submission
from Equitable Life to this inquiry which should be with me by
Friday 1 October.
