Will the pictures in the exhibition be available on picture libraries, including free/low-cost ones? If not, then this exhibition doesn't help at all... Journalists & bloggers need pictures and need them quickly for articles on poverty. No time or budget to commission ones.

Some thoughts on the FCA's Sector Views published today: 1) Good to see the emphasise on financial crime and the growing harm to consumers. 2020 is the year banks need to work to reduce this.
