Curious about the credit crunch? Ask Darling - Treasury hearing

How will the credit crunch affect your savings? Is your nest egg safe in the Isle of Man? Is now a good time to be shopping around for a new mortgage?

Who better to ask than the Governor of the Bank of England - unless you can get through to the Chancellor himself?

Three of Britain's most powerful public servants face a grilling from MPs today about the world financial crisis and for the first time the questions will be provided by members of the public.

................Many of those who have sent questions in have a direct personal interest in the answers, however. They include angry depositors from the offshore Isle of Man subsidiary of the Icelandic bank Kaupthing Singer and Friedlander whose assets, totalling some £800 million, were frozen by the UK Treasury under anti-terrorism laws last month but who have not yet received any guarantee that they will get their money back.

It's too late to ask any questions of the trio. The deadline was on Saturday at 4pm, 48 hours before the hearing.
