New letter to MPs

Hi All,
I've trawled right through the replies members' have had from MPs and am thinking that we should write again to MPs highlighting the fact that the Government appears to be ignoring all representation until it is too late to act..
I have listed all the MPs who have written to the Government and those who have written back to us citing other MPs' letters..

Any comments? Omissions?


Here's my suggested letter..

Dear xxxxxx,
Thank you for the interest you have shown in the Kaupthing, Singer and Friedlander (IoM) depositors’ circumstances.
On November 27th the court on the Isle of Man will decide if the bank is to be wound up. It is therefore imperative that depositors hear from the Government what actions they are taking to:
1. Return the 550 million GBP deposited by KSF (IoM) in KSF (UK)
2. Press the Icelandic government to honour the guarantee made by the parent bank, Kaupthing, in September 2007.
I can tell you that the following MPs are pressing their Front Bench Colleagues or have written (or forwarded depositors’ letters) to the Treasury, Alistair Darling or Jack Straw, the Lord Chancellor, about our situation but as yet, no satisfactory reply has been forthcoming. It seems the Government may simply be biding time until it is too late.

Depositors are very grateful to Mary Creagh MP and those who spoke at the debate in the House on November 6th. The response from the Minister Ian Pearson, however, was evasive and unhelpful.
Please will you act on our behalf and put pressure on the Government to answer the questions put to them and to act before it is too late for the many British citizens whose savings will be substantially lost if the bank is wound up.
Yours sincerely,
