UK: FRC/ARGA - first Government remit letter published

One of the recommendations made by Sir John Kingman, in his review of the Financial Reporting Council, was that the Government should issue the FRC (and its propopsed successor: the Audit, Reporting and Governance Authority) with a remit letter, at least once during the lifetime of each Parliament, setting out "those aspects of economic policy that the regulator should have regard to when advancing its objectives and discharging its duties". It was also recommended that the FRC/ARGA should respond publicly to the remit letter. The first of these exchanges took place in March and have now been published: see here (pdf) and here (pdf).
