I am told there will soon be a Green paper on the banks. The government wishes to tackle the question of financing the recovery.
I welcome that, and welcome the fact that reading the papers it appears Parliament will be the first to know what is in it.
Readers of this site will know that I would like it to contain steps to put more competition into High Street UK banking. I would also like the banking regulators to say they have done enough for the time being, to allow the banks leeway to lend more to good businesses and against good projects.
