Northern Rock Legislation

Today the Government will seek to move legislation through the House of Commons in a day - and tomorrow hopes to do the same in the House of Lords - in order to deal with issues arising from the Northern Rock affair. This bill is known as the Banking (Special Provisions) Bill. It is possible that each House may need to stay late in order to complete business.

The text of the bill should soon be available at http://services.parliament.uk/bills/


(Yesterday's statement by Chancellor of the Exchequer, Alistair Darling, can be found at http://pubs1.tso.parliament.uk/pa/cm200708/cmhansrd/cm080218/debtext/80218-0004.htm#0802183000003)
