BBC News - Bank bonuses ’to run to billions in 2011’
The government is resigned to UK banks paying out billions of pounds in bonuses this year, despite its calls to curb the payments, the BBC has learnt.
The best the coalition can hope for is a declaration from the banks that they will pay out less than they would have without government intervention, said BBC business editor Robert Peston.
The government is also looking for banks to lend more to small businesses.
Business Secretary Vince Cable has been vocal in his opposition to big bonuses.
He told the BBC last month that the coalition government was “fully signed up” to “robust action” in curbing bonuses.
