*Batra v Financial Conduct Authority

Financial services – Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) issued a Decision Notice against the applicant director of a mortgage and insurance company stating that it had decided to: (a) withdraw his approval to perform controlled functions in relation to the company; and (b) make a prohibition order against him. The applicant contested the FCA's decision and referred the Decision Notice to the Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery Chamber). The tribunal dismissed the reference, deciding that although the applicant had not been deliberately dishonest, he had lacked integrity in his business dealings and his dealings with the FCA.
