'The chief executive of RBS has been accused by MPs of withholding information about an investigation into criminal activity within the bank.
Ross McEwan had told the Treasury Committee in January that there was not any criminality inside the bank.
But in June, the Times reported that Police Scotland was investigating allegations about a former employee, which MPs then asked him to clarify.
Mr McEwan said he had replied to the Committee's questions in "good faith".
He had been giving evidence about the way the bank's Global Restructuring Group (GRG) had treated small business companies (SMEs).
The session related to a leaked regulatory report that found an "intentional, co-ordinated strategy" to put RBS's interests ahead of customers.
He had been asked: "Do you think that there has been any criminal activity within the bank by your staff?"
Mr McEwan had replied: "Not that we have seen or had reported, and certainly none that the police or the Serious Fraud Office are looking at, to our knowledge."
It was then reported in June that Police Scotland was investigating allegations that had been made in relation to a former employee of the restructuring division.
Nicky Morgan, who chairs the committee, sought an explanation and after receiving a written explanation from Mr McEwan said he had "withheld information of relevance and interest".'
