Motion text

That this House draws attention to the pivotal role HBOS has played in the collapse of Farepak, the Christmas savings scheme, whose bankruptcy blights the Christmas of half a million decent people, many of whom have been saving since January of this year; notes that HBOS allowed Farepak to continue trading whilst it clawed back something like £1 million a week of people's savings to offset the company's overdraft with the bank; further notes that in the last financial year HBOS reported a staggering record pre-tax profit of £4.8 billion; and calls on the bank to make good quickly the savings of those decent citizens who have been carefully saving money with Farepak to offset the extra costs of Christmas.
