Motion text

That this House notes the offer made by Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Holdings for the Midland Bank; believes that any reduction in competition between the clearing banks would significantly affect consumer choice, and hence be unwelcome to banking customers, especially small businesses; welcomes HSBC'S intentions to retain the Midland Bank's identity and to ensure that it continues to act as a strong and competitive force in British banking; and believes that the creation of a strong British bank of world stature will strengthen London as Europe's pre-eminent financial centre.
