Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has indicated that restoring consumers’ trust in banks will be a key focus of the federal government’s response to the final report of the financial services royal commission. He says the government will also aim to ensure that there is competition in the sector and that consumers and businesses continue to have access to credit. Meanwhile, shadow treasurer Chris Bowen says a Labor government would establish a taskforce to implement the inquiry’s recommendations, claiming that only Labor can restore the public’s trust in financial services providers.
