Bank of England’s Tucker asks to appear before Libor inquiry

BoE deputy governor asks to appear “as soon as possible” following calls for the Bank to explain Diamond conversation

Paul Tucker, BoE

The deputy governor of the Bank of England (BoE) has asked to appear before the UK Treasury select committee "as soon as possible" following calls – including from a Conservative member of parliament (MP) – for the central bank to explain its role in the Libor rigging scandal.

The request follows Barclays' publication of an email summarising an October 2008 telephone conversation between Bob Diamond – the bank's chief executive who resigned yesterday – and Paul Tucker, the BoE's deputy governor
