    It beggars belief that people in these positions don't think it was pertinent to mention something like this yet it seems to happen time and time again.

    You'd think it would form part of the screening checks when they applied/got offered the job.

    But I fully accept it was a mistake, made worse by the fact that my involvement in drafting the policy made it incumbent on me to get all my own declarations absolutely right," Ms Hogg said.

    "I also, in the course of a long hearing, unintentionally misled the committee as to whether I had filed my brother's job on the correct forms at the Bank.

    "I would like to repeat my apologies for that, and to make clear that the responsibility for all those errors is mine alone."

    John Mann, an MP on the Treasury Committee, told BBC Radio 5 live it was "appropriate" she had resigned.

    "She wrote the code of conduct for the Bank of England which says: 'Do you have a family member working in the banking industry, ie a brother or sister?'
