We recently challenged Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England, over a truly ludicrous claim he’d made in the course of a speech at the TUC:
Hiring more women in senior roles makes us much, more effective
We wrote an article for AVfM which included a link to the letter in which we’d publicly challenged Carney – here.
Our challenge was passed onto Roger Beaton, of the bank’s ‘Public Information and Enquiries Group’, for a response. Apparently the best this hapless official could manage was this embarrassing response, so we’re about to reply with this.
