Letter from Chair of the Committee to
Paul Braithwaite, General Secretary, Equitable Members Action
Group, 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 EMAG to this inquiry. I note that you have already made a
submission to HM Treasury on 6 September. Would you be content
for the Committee to draw on this for their inquiry?
If instead you wish to provide a specific memorandum
to the Committee I would be grateful for a short submission to
be with me by Friday 1 October.
