The Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec) 2018 MQ5 statistical bulletin is the last MQ5 in its current form. As initially announced in September 2018, changes to ONS surveys that cover the financial sector will be necessary over the next two years, as part of the Enhanced Financial Accounts (EFA) initiative. The ONS, in partnership with the Bank of England, plans to improve the quality, coverage and granularity of UK financial statistics. This work entails wide-ranging redesign and replacement of surveys that currently provide the data presented in this publication, making continued production of the MQ5 statistical bulletin in its current form unviable. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause. If you have any concerns relating to this announcement please email
