Cameron calls for cross-party response to crisis

Conservative leader David Cameron has offered to work with the Government to help restore financial stability.

Speaking to the BBC this morning from the Conservative conference in Birmingham, Cameron said a cross-party response was needed to help the Government to tackle the financial turbulence.

He said: “Just as you need cross-party working in the US to get this vital package through, so in the UK we should stand ready as a responsible opposition to help in any way we can.

“I mean, one thing that is important is the legislation that’s been drawn up but not passed on bank rescue, that does need to go through. We’ve been arguing that for a year.”

“Parliament comes back on Monday and I think we need to get on with that job in a cross-party way.”

Cameron is expected to give an unscheduled address to the conference this morning to respond to the global financial crisis that has unfolded since the US House of Representatives rejected a $700bn bail out plan yesterday.
