The Lautro 19

The High Court will take at least a month to decide as to whether to rule in favour of the FSA's appeal to avoid naming the Lautro 19.

The FSA presented new evidence this Monday, which focused on the FSA's argument that confidential information received by the FSA must not be disclosed without consent.

This relates to a Freedom of Information request by IFA Defence Union chairman Evan Owen in January 2005. The Information Commissioner ruled in August 2007 that the FSA had to name the endowment mortgage providers which misused Lautro projections in setting premiums.
