Is the FSCS compensation of £85k government backed?

The request was successful.

Dear Her Majesty’s Treasury,

Is this guarantee backed by either law or statute? I note the earlier FOI regarding the £50k guarantee which was apparently backed by neither and I wonder whether conditions relating to the current higher guarantee are any different.

Yours faithfully,

Bill Kruse
