July 07, 2012

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne will argue British banks should have the right to pay large bonuses when he attends a meeting of European finance ministers next week, the Financial Times reported.

Osborne will argue against a draft European Union proposal for a one-to-one bonus-to-salary ratio at a July 10 meeting, the newspaper said, citing unidentified Treasury officials. Britain is in the minority in its opposition to the cap, the FT said.
