Report: UK lawmaker asks PRA for views on transitional arrangement after Brexit

The new chair of the U.K. Parliament's Treasury Select Committee, Nicky Morgan, asked Prudential Regulation Authority CEO Sam Woods for his views on the "desirability and design" of a transitional arrangement for businesses after Britain leaves the EU, Reuters reported Aug. 1.

"Getting these arrangements right will be crucial for ensuring that the City [of London] retains its pre-eminence as a global financial center, and to protect the economy and jobs as the U.K. leaves the EU," Morgan reportedly said in a statement announcing her request to the Bank of England.

She reportedly asked for a summary of the responses Woods received when he wrote to several hundred firms in April asking how they would deal with an abrupt severing of ties with Europe, with the PRA saying it would reply to Morgan by Aug. 2, Reuters noted.
