The Observer | Business | Labour to raid 'dormant' cash
The government is set to raid £15 billion lying 'dormant' in Britain's bank accounts to raise enterprise and skills in some of Britain's hardest-pressed areas.
Assets are regarded as dormant when they are unclaimed in bank accounts unused for at least a year.
Using the billions of pounds languishing unclaimed in financial institutions is to be a key part of Labour's plans to transform run-down inner cities.
Wonderful - you build up a bit of FU money and don't touch it for a year and Robber Brown has had it away! I presume he gives it back if you ask, or does he?
