UK Regulators


The Industry and Regulators Committee is launching an inquiry into UK regulators, with a focus on their roles, remit, independence and accountability.

The inquiry will examine whether regulators as a whole have been given a clear job to do and whether their roles and remits are sufficiently discrete from one another. The inquiry will also examine whether regulators are appropriately independent of Government, including whether the right balance is being struck between strategic and political input from government and preserving regulators’ operational independence. The inquiry will further examine how regulators should be held to account for their performance, and by whom – including the respective roles of the Government and of Parliament.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Friday 1 December 2023.
