Investigators could be sent to unearth information about the role of the Bank of England in the 2008 financial crisis if the Government refuses to fix "defective" legislation, a leading MP said.


Tory Andrew Tyrie, who chairs the Treasury Select Committee, said his members would not hesitate to send specialists into the Financial Services Authority (FSA) for a second time to get answers about the Bank's role.
