Scottish Government Finance Secretary responds to the resignation of Stephen Hester

Finance Secretary John Swinney said:

“In difficult times Stephen Hester has made a significant contribution to stabilising RBS and putting the bank back on track. Our priority is in ensuring stability for staff and customers and we look forward to discussing their proposals for the future with RBS. Whilst there are a number of proposals for returning RBS to the private sector the UK Government must ensure a stable financial sector and a return for taxpayers.”
