One of our core activities on behalf of our members is to represent lenders’ collective views on matters of common interest.
With this in mind, we monitor the work of the Westminster Parliament and the devolved administrations, responding to consultations and lobbying on key issues as and when necessary. Week in Westminster is our regular weekly round-up of relevant parliamentary business. And the highlights from the most recent Budget statements are below.
We also keep parliamentarians up to date on the key issues for the mortgage lending industry in a variety of ways. Our parliamentary newsletter, Housing finance at a glance, is distributed quarterly - the latest issue was sent out in April 2017.
Following the devolved elections in May 2016, we distributed short briefing papers on the mortgage market for the newly elected members of the London Assembly, Scottish Parliament, Welsh Assembly, and the Northern Ireland Assembly.
