‘The Treasury will publish Lord Penrose’s report into Equitable Life on Monday. We will publish the report in full,’ chancellor Gordon Brown told parliament today.

Big Four firm, Ernst & Young, auditors of the mutual at the time, is expected to escape censure from the report, but government departments and the Financial Services Authority are likely to be heavily criticised.
