ENFORCEMENT OF BANK OF ENGLAND ACT 1694
EDM #597
Tabled 22 July 2010
2010-12 Session
That this House, observing that the intention of the founding Act of the Bank of England in 1694 was `that their Majesties' subjects may not be oppressed by the said corporation', notes that those subjects have been seriously oppressed by the Bank's failure to control the greed, risk-taking and speculation of the banking system over which it presides; and therefore suggests that this oppression should be dealt with as the Act provides, by fines in the sum of three times the value of the abusive trading.
