Will the FSAs extension of its deadline for responses to CP121 make you more likely to respond to the paper?

“No, I am over 60 and coming to the end of my career in this business. All I want to do is get on with my job.”

Paul Butler,Mr Paul Butler

“No, I am not sure I will. I am sort of winding down towards retirement. I think it is nonsense that they should get rid of polarisation but they have got in their minds that they will, so I think they will.”

Ian Cave, Mr Ian A Cave

Alan Lenton, Alan Lenton Financial Services

“Yes, because I have been incredibly busy and it allows me more time, particularly as I was relying on the network but they seem curiously inept about doing a response.”

Neil Parker, Hadleigh Financial Planning

“No. I do not think the FSA will take any notice, the people there have already made up their minds.”

Simon Funnell, Quest Financial Services

“No. I am so busy with everything else, I am relying on our professional organisations and trade bodies to provide the responses.”

“No. It is a fait accompli. The FSA&#39s regulation has destroyed by career and my life and I am now moving on to bancassurance.”

Andrew Davison Independent Financial Advisers

“Yes. Initial responses were kneejerk reactions but there will now be a more considered response.”

Barrie Mason, Money Matters
