Stephen Metcalfe MP gets some good news from the Regional Director of Lloyds TSB

Last week, Stephen Metcalfe, local MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock, met with Steve Arnold, the Regional Director of Lloyds TSB at the Stanford-le-Hope Branch, to discuss measures that the bank is taking to promote growth and increase lending to both individuals and businesses.

Mr Metcalfe, who has proved to be a strong advocate for businesses, commented:  “I make a concerted effort to meet with people such as Steve Arnold to make sure that I am aware of current banking issues and how these issues might affect my constituents and businesses within my constituency.”

Mr Arnold had encouraging news from Lloyds. Not only is the bank lending more than ever to businesses, but it has initiated a number of new projects to help people onto the property ladder and to manage their finances.

Mr Metcalfe added: “I was delighted to hear the good news from Mr Arnold. Lloyds TSB are beginning to see positive signs of business growth and are expanding their range of services to help people manage in these difficult economic times.”

“As we emerge out of a recession it is extremely encouraging to hear news that offers hope for individuals, businesses and the country as a whole.”
