Statement from Mrs Sally Masterton regarding her settlement with Lloyds Banking Group

“I am pleased that Lloyds Banking Group has listened to me following the public release of the Project Lord Turnbull report in May of this year and has recognised the distress and inconvenience this has caused me. I am greatly relieved that the Bank has acknowledged that I acted with integrity and in good faith in raising my concerns with them.

“I am assisting Dame Linda Dobbs with her review into the actions of Lloyds Banking Group in relation to HBOS Reading following the acquisition of HBOS in 2009.

“I am satisfied that Dame Linda’s review is the appropriate forum for considering these matters, together with any subsequent investigation or enquiry by the FCA.”
