Overview

The Bank of England's new deputy governor, Charlotte Hogg, has resigned for failing to declare a potential conflict of interest about her brother's role at Barclays Plc which prompted an unprecedented rebuke from Parliament.

Unilever Plc is conducting a sweeping review of the Anglo-Dutch company that could result in a return of cash to shareholders, medium-sized acquisitions and more aggressive cost cuts.

Support for Scottish independence is at its highest ever but anti-EU sentiment has also reached a record high, according to a survey by ScotCen's Scottish Social Attitudes.

Incoming GlaxoSmithKline Plc Chief Executive Emma Walmsley will receive lower pay than long-serving predecessor Andrew Witty, reflecting her lack of experience in the role. (Compiled by Ismail Shakil in Bengaluru; Editing by Sandra Maler)
