1. EDM 1297 advocates that the Bank of England has failed to control the greed, risk-taking and speculation of the banking system over which it presides. How does the Chancellor propose to deal with the resulting oppression of Her Majesty’s subjects, given that the Bank of England Act 1694 provides by fines three times the value of abusive trading?
2. Would the Chancellor consider rising overindebtedness, home repossessions, bankruptcies and suicides signs of Her Majesties’ subjects being oppressed by a legal and financial system that is not working for the benefit of the Nation as a whole?
3. Given that the stated aim of the Treasury “to achieve rising prosperity and a better quality of life with economic and employment opportunities for all” is getting further and further from being reached, due to the perpetuation of the crisis, would the Chancellor consider the enforcement of the Bank of England Act 1694 that was written with the intention that Their Majesties’ subjects should not be oppressed?
