LONDON, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Britain's Financial Conduct
Authority (FCA) said it would end its current guidance on banks
providing mortgage payment holidays on Oct. 31, but called on
lenders to continue to support borrowers in difficulty after
The FCA had extended the scheme, which allows mortgage
customers to defer payments if they have been impacted by the
coronavirus pandemic, for a further three months from its
original June end-point.
The FCA said it would keep the situation under review.
