The system would identify which investments offer low risks and those that lure buyers with potentially bigger returns but involve taking a gamble. Chancellor Alistair Darling wants to force the financial services industry to give ordinary families more information and understanding of the baffling range of mortgages, savings and insurance plans on offer in the High Street. It will be a flagship measure in todays long- awaited White Paper from the Treasury on reforming the banking system in the wake of the deep failings exposed by the banking crisis. The three-pronged plan aims to beef up regulation, punish undue risks and help consumers buy appropriate products. A tax on size to discourage banks from taking too many gambles at once is expected, according to industry insiders who were consulted on the details. And bankers pay and bonuses will have to be linked to their long-term performance. A senior banker said today: This is basically something we can live with until the Conservatives come into power next year and set out their plans for the industry.

The former UN deputy secretary general insisted it had nothing to do with the political situation and he still greatly admired the Prime Minister. The Africa minister told him before the last reshuffle that he wanted to step down in the summer.

THe G8 summit got off to a chaotic start today with its host, Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, being accused of failing to fulfil his pledges on overseas aid. Fears of an earthquake and the departure of Chinese president Hu Jintao following riots in China overshadowed the beginning of the three-day meeting. Gordon Brown wants to use the summit, held in the earthquake-hit town of LAquila in Italy, to get leaders to publish timetables setting out whether they are meeting commitments to double aid to Africa by next year. The pledge, made at the Gleneagles summit four years ago, has still not been met by many nations. Italy is the biggest culprit and this week Bob Geldof lambasted Mr Berlusconi over his plans to cut his overseas budget. Adrian Lovett, from charity Save The Children, pointed out that Italy will cut aid by 10 per cent on top of a 56 per cent reduction last year. Its a disgrace. Coming from the host of the G8, this raises serious questions about the credibility of the summit, he said. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html
