Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond called on banks to strengthen a proposed redress scheme for small businesses, which lawmakers and victims argue is too soft on lenders. A dispute service proposed by UK Finance, which represents banks, must include a broad range of interests and not impose a compensation cap, Hammond said in a letter released on Tuesday.

The first portion is expected to be a $500m to $700m high yield bond, according to analysts, followed by $1.5bn of bank debt and a further $800m to $900m of loans guaranteed by the UK government’s Infrastructure Project Authority. Sirius said the new structure had been designed to reduce the risk to the UK taxpayer because the IPA debt would only be drawn once sales had started and the main construction risks had passed. Sirius has previously been looking to raise $1.5bn from government-basked loans.

Workers that cannot relocate will leave Vodafone but the company expects its overall staff numbers to remain broadly similar after the restructuring as it replaces people that leave.
