(1A)The duty of the FCA to consult the PRA under subsection (1)(a) applies only in so far as the statement or code applies to persons in relation to whom approval is given under section 59 in respect of the performance by them of significant-influence functions (within the meaning of that section) in relation to the carrying on by PRA-authorised persons of regulated activities.]

(b)those details must be accompanied by a cost benefit analysis.

(6)Neither subsection (2)(a) nor subsection (5)(b) applies if [F8the regulator concerned] considers—

[F9(7)Subsections (1)(b) and (2) to (6) do not apply in relation to—

(i)be prejudicial to the safety and soundness of PRA-authorised persons, or

(a)in relation to subsection (2)(a), a comparison between the overall position if the statement or code is issued and the overall position if it is not issued;
