Commenting on reports that the Chancellor will announce the Government’s intention to sell Northern Rock, Co-chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Treasury Committee, Stephen Williams said:
“The most important thing is that taxpayers get value for money from Northern Rock.
“But Northern Rock wasn’t the only bank the British people bailed out. I want to make sure we all get something back from RBS and Lloyds too.
“That’s why I’ve proposed giving taxpayers shares in the banks so that we all get a fair share.”
