The Treasury Committee has published the government's response to its report in March on economic crime in which it called for new powers for Companies House and extra scrutiny of estate agents.
Nicky Morgan, the MP who chairs the Treasury Committee, said she was disappointed the government had not backed ideas to create a register of Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs).
But, she said: "The recent announcement of a consultation into the reform of Companies House is timely, and the government should be ambitious in the new powers and resources that it proposes to provide to this vital component of the UK’s defence against economic crime.
“The government is currently assessing whether the power to block a stock market listing on national security grounds is necessary. The committee will follow the government’s conclusions on this closely".
