Financial Services Authority chairman backs tax on 'socially useless' banks
"The government's top financial regulator last night backed radical plans for a multibillion-pound tax on banks as a way to tackle the City's persistent bonus culture.
"Lord Turner, chairman of the Financial Services Authority, warned bankers that he would support a new wave of taxes on the City to prevent excessive profiteering if they continue to take excessive risks.
"In a searing critique of the industry, Lord Turner described much of the City's activities as "socially useless" and questioned whether it has grown too large."
