    M465 - Motion for annual Bank of England audit, Joecphillips seconded by CountBrandenbergThis House believes that the Government should begin an audit of the Bank of England under parliament scrutiny. As far as I know, there is no audit by parliament on a regular basis, and we have never really seen their so called 'books' as they never reveal them. I and the house firmly believe we need an audit of the bank under strict parliament scrutiny, by a separate committee appointed by the treasury. I am aware that there are independent auditors, but it is more democratic if parliament quizzes the officials at the BoE regularly. The BoE are dangerously autonomous so I think this is a step worth taking.

    Note: This is actually a motion written by heri2rs a year ago that he wanted submitting before he became inactive.

    Yer, I had. I'm going to go through and change all of these ones at the end though as there are likely to be a lot to change
