On 28 July 2020, HM Treasury announced a Payments Landscape Review and that it was issuing a Call for Evidence as the first stage in the review.

The Call for Evidence sets out the government’s aims for payments networks in the UK, makes a high-level assessment of how well the present system is delivering against the government’s aims and asks questions about the opportunities, gaps and risks that need to be addressed in order to ensure that the UK maintains its status as a country at the cutting edge of payments technology.

The Call for Evidence will close on 20 October 2020.
