Abstract

The Financial Services and Markets Bill is an impressive attempt to revisit the field of financial regulation and to replace the existing regulatory structure with a single regulator with coherent powers. There is a danger, from the legal perspective, that the Dill is too widely drawn, vesting the new single regulator with too wide a discretion to formulate rules and policies which themselves will not be susceptible to legislative scrutiny.
