Does the Chancellor accept that because of the banking crisis, many of my constituents are deeply anxious about their financial future? They say to me, "Sir Nicholas, I hope that those who are responsible within the banking system will not benefit from the rescue package." They also tell me that they hope that the world, let alone this Chamber, the House of Commons, will be united in what needs to be done until the financial crisis is ended and stability and confidence are restored. Does the Chancellor agree?
