Statement on Financial Markets

- Monday, 13th October 2008

 

Statement
Date of Proceeding: 13.10.2008
Reference: 480 c550
Member: Lilley, Peter
Title: Financial Markets
Description: I wholeheartedly agree with the Chancellor's remark in response to an earlier question-that the principal lesson of the past year is that delay and indecision undermine the impact of measures when they are eventually introduced. Is not that even more true of a lack of detail? Will he issue to this House a detailed paper on all the decisions that have been taken and let us know, for example, what interest rate-what dividend rate as a percentage-he is charging on the preference shares for these banks?
