Public given chance to grill Chancellor on banking crisis

The Treasury Select Committee is giving the public the opportunity to grill the Chancellor on the financial rescue package by submitting email questions.

The committee is to hold an urgent inquiry into the banking crisis following the Government’s unprecedented intervention.

The Chancellor Alistair Darling, Bank of England governor Mervyn King and FSA chairman Lord Adair Turner will be called as witnesses at the session which has not yet been timetabled.

Committee MPs will pose some of the questions emailed by members of the public to the witnesses during the session.

Committee chairman Labour MP John McFall says: “This inquiry will take a fundamental look at the causes of the present banking crisis, the current responsibilities of the banks and the Government to the taxpayer, and the future shape of the financial and regulatory landscape.”
