6 September 2010, 2:00 am

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will provide financial incentives to businesses in the financial services sector to enable their staff to volunteer in schools to support the provision of financial literacy teaching; and if he will make a statement.

financial services sector

Aren't these the people who bought billions in US bad debt, thinking that it was a good idea and also skim billions off of the private pension savings of many British citizens? Oh yes they are!

Why do we want to use tax-payers money to get them to teach our children anythink. You might as well get them to study the works of Arthur Daly.

If they want to teach kids about money out of some sense of common decency, fine (if unlikely). But don't give them financial incentives!

Also, how on earth does that square with the Big Society where volunteers will run the entire public sector for free, in their own time. Can I have some financial incentives to do an hour a week in my local library?

Also, I'm going to start hoarding biros!

I rather think I will have fries with that.
