The Bank of England chairs a number of market committees:
The Sterling Money Markets Liaison Committee (MMLC) is chaired by the Head of Sterling Markets Division. The Committee meets quarterly as a means for the Bank and market practitioners to maintain regular contact with each other at a senior level. In addition to members from the market, who come from a broad range of institutions, there are also members from trade organisations and official bodies. Others are occasionally invited to discuss matters of particular interest.
The Securities Lending and Repo Committee (SLRC), also chaired by the Head of Sterling Markets Division, provides an opportunity for practitioners and the authorities to discuss developments in London-based securities lending and repo markets.
An article in the winter 2001 Bank of England Quarterly Bulletin covers the work of the MMLC and SLRC in the context of the Bank's other market liaison and intelligence activities.
