Answer for Appointment of Brexit Advisers (2)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Baroness Shriti Vadera has been appointed to my Brexit Advisory Group to give counsel on issues relevant to the financial services sector. Her position as Chairman of Santander UK and role leading the European Financial Services Chairmen's Advisory Committee, one of the sector's chief Brexit lobby groups, makes her eminently qualified.
