The Plaintiffs who were the Appellants in this appeal and are hereafter referred to as such made a very large number of allegations against the Bank of England the Bank with regard to its exercise of its powers and discretions under the statutory scheme of Banking Supervision contained in the Banking Acts of 1979 and 1987.
