Another long day and late night debating the Brexit Bill.
George In The News!
Some of you might have seen or read the news about the six HBOS bankers jailed ruining small businesses so they could grab their assets and sell them off. It cost Lloyds, which took over HBOS in 2008, £245million and at least 50 small businesses were ruined as a result.
As Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for East Lothian I wrote to the Chief Executive of Lloyds, pressing for full and fair compensation for all. I shall be taking it with Lloyds face to face with Lloyds Director of Commercial Banking!
I certainly made the news and you can read all about it HERE
