Profile: Tory MP Guto Bebb on fighting the FCA and rebuilding trust in regulation.

Mark Sands, writing for Money Marketing, “Last month, Aberconwy MP Guto Bebb was just another one of the Conservatives’ rebellious back-benchers. A forthright campaigner, Bebb may be known among advisers as the man behind the parliamentary debate into whether the FCA is fit for purpose.While the regulator ultimately escaped a vote of no confidence, Bebb has been part of a movement that has already forced multiple concessions from the Government, defeating Chancellor George Osborne’s plans for both pension tax relief reform and changes to tax credits.The recently proposed (and now spiked) cuts to personal independence payments saw Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith resign in protest, and, in the mini-reshuffle that followed, Bebb was promoted to under-secretary of state for Wales, and named a Government whip."
