Parliament. Macmillan appears to have exploited, but not actually cultivated, a public perception that the American cancellation of Skybolt in 1962 left the UK without a long term deterrent capability, and that the USA was therefore somehow responsible for provision of a substitute; Polaris. The Royal Navy had actually been working on the strategic case for a submarine-based strategic nuclear deterrent since at least 1958, and had a fully developed business case in hand the moment the Skybolt decision was known. Having had a 1960 Conference vote in favour of adoption of a policy of unilateral nuclear disarmament reversed in 1961, Wilson’s Labour government was elected in 1964 on a manifesto commitment of renegotiation of the Polaris Sales Agreement. Within months, Wilson’s Cabinet agreed on the construction of four Resolution class submarines and the purchase of Polaris missiles as agreed by Macmillan and Kennedy, although the force was presented publicly as part of an Anglo-American ‘Atlantic Nuclear Force’, a concept that was dropped almost immediately afterwards. The first of the class was to be HMS Revenge, and the submarines would thenceforth have been the ‘Revenge Class’ but this was thought (by the First Lord of the Admiralty) to be too malevolent and the first of class was commissioned HMS Resolution and the 4th ‘Resolution Class’ submarine was commissioned HMS Revenge.15 The period 1964-1979 is particularly interesting for the student of nuclear policy because it includes two Labour governments which abrogated manifesto commitments to reduce or cancel nuclear deterrence commitments; Wilson’s government had commissioned Polaris and introduced it into Service, and in the 1970’s, under extreme secrecy, introduced and sustained an update programme for Polaris; Super Antelope (later Chevaline). Callaghan’s government, faced with the impending obsolescence of Polaris in the early 1980s, chose to continue the Chevaline programme and to commission studies into a Polaris replacement, despite having ‘renounced any intention of moving towards the production of a new generation of nuclear weapons or a successor to the Polaris nuclear force.’16 Both governments used very carefully worded public and parliamentary statements to convey one meaning which could be interpreted within their manifesto 15 HENNESSY, P. & JINKS, J. 2015.

As the markets in financial services developed, rules were introduced and continually refined so that business could be conducted in an orderly and fair manner. Of course, rules are not a guarantee of successful investment. There is risk. World events, government policies, natural disasters or just simply corporate decisions and company performance all influence the way prices move. Nevertheless, professionals in the industry apply knowledge, experience and skill in order to make the best judgement for their clients and for themselves. But there are those who through fraudulent of incompetent practice. place their clients' money in jeopardy. To combat this, Parliament introduced legislation which heralded a new system of financial services regulations. With the primary aim of improving investor protection, the Financial Services Act 1986 brought about a major restructuring in the way investment services are regulated. Is became a criminal offence to carry on investment business if not authorised to do so. A new organisation, the Securities and Investments Board (SIB) was established to oversee the implementation of the Act. SIB devolved its powers so authorise and the task of day-to-day enforcement to specialist self-regulatory organisations (SROs), though it retains the overall responsibility for e...
