Credit Card PPI: Anger over banks' secret billions

A senior parliamentarian has blasted the secrecy surrounding the loan of £61.6 to two major British retail banks.

Chairman of the public accounts committee Edward Leigh has written to the chancellor to express his concerns over the loans, ePolitix reports.

In the letter, he said that under departmental rules parliament should have been notified of the loans, which were made over a year ago to prop up the Royal Bank of Scotland and Halifax Bank of Scotland before the latter became part of Lloyds.

His letter said: "In circumstances where the existence of an indemnity needs to be kept confidential, the rules specify that such notification should be made to the chair of public accounts committee."

Earlier this week, leading members of parliament reacted angrily to the announcement that the identity of high-earning bankers will not be disclosed.
