That this House calls on the Government to levy a windfall tax on those speculators who shamelessly broke their deal with the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills over the privatisation of the Royal Mail and profited at the expense of the British taxpayer; and urges the Government to clearly demonstrate in this way that it will no longer tolerate this appalling standard of behaviour in the City and will act decisively whenever it is discovered that the taxpayer is losing out to commercial interests.
