Former UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock is one of six Members of Parliament from the ruling Conservative Party seeking to lead the powerful Treasury Committee, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.

Half a dozen lawmakers have indicated that they want to stand in the contest for the job, which gives them the authority to interrogate the chancellor of the exchequer, the governor of the Bank of England, financial regulators and executives from commercial banks.
