We need to recognise that just as financial stability and supervision have, rightly, become a key area of competence for Eurozone institutions like the European Central Bank – so financial stability and supervision is a key area of competence for national institutions like the Bank of England for countries not in the euro. We can achieve that at the same time as we go on building the single market in financial services”.

    Text of this speech, given at St Peter’s College Oxford on 21 October 2015, follows. Mark Carney discusses aspects of... the impact of the UK’s membership on BoE’s objectives. A link on page 2 of the speech links to a BoE report entitled “EU Membership and the Bank of England” which provides further detail. The report concludes that the openness of the UK economy has almost certainly increased as a result of EU membership and that the domestic institutional framework for financial stability in place depends in part on the quality of financial regulation set at the EU level and the flexibility to apply that regulation to meet the specific financial stability. It states that it would be desirable to have clear principles to safeguard the interests of non-euro area member states.
