Real Help Now

Gordon Brown was in the East of England this week to explain our plan for Real Help Now. The PM sets out the three key steps we’ve taken; to save the banks – and our bank accounts; to give our economy a shot in the arm and deliver real help now; and third, to expand lending. This week, our work on “step three” took a big leap forward with deals agreed with Northern Rock and Royal Bank of Scotland to boost lending by some £39 billion. But, we are very clear, that regional and national action, has to be backed by global co-ordination. That’ll be centre-stage when Gordon meets President Obama, and speaks to both House of Congress next week.
