To ask Her Majesty's Government what consultations they have undertaken with (1) central clearing parties, (2) asset managers, (3) investment banks, and (4) insurance firms, about regulations for future market access to the EU; whether they intend to undertake a public consultation on future EU market access for financial services; and if so, when.

The Government is in regular contact with the financial services industry on a range of EU issues, including the future relationship. This has included ministerial and official meetings with a wide range of central clearing parties, asset managers, investment banks, and insurance firms, among others, in order to inform our negotiations with the EU.

HM Treasury will continue to engage with the financial services sector as negotiations with the EU progress.
