Central Bank Digital Currencies

Inquiry

The House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee is launching an inquiry on Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs).

HM Treasury and the Bank of England are exploring the potential of a possible CBDC for the UK. The Committee will take evidence on the main issues confronting HM Treasury and the Bank as they conduct this work. It will also examine how a CBDC might affect the role of the Bank, monetary policy and the financial sector
