star this property answer text <p>The Chancellor has previously set out his objectives for the banks in state ownership, including Royal Bank of Scotland. We want to maximise the ability of these important banks to support the British economy, and we want to get the best value for money for the taxpayer.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Large scale public ownership has an inhibiting effect on the involvement of private institutions in a company such as RBS, and therefore naturally impacts on broader commercial performance. The best way to deliver our objectives is to return RBS to private ownership. Commercial organisations are more efficient, more innovative and more effective when they are in the private sector.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>This policy is supported by advice from the Governor of the Bank of England and independent analysis from Rothschild investment bank. In their recent report into this issue, Rothschild note that by starting to sell down its stake in RBS, “the Government can bring about broader benefits for the institution, which could help to accelerate its recovery”, as well as improving the share price and securing value for the taxpayer.</p><p> </p>

All UK airstrikes are conducted in accordance with Rules of Engagement and International Humanitarian Law. Targets are selected with the utmost care, the risks of collateral damage or civilian casualties are assessed and mitigated based on intelligence and the use of precision guided weapons.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Ministry of Defence has no direct commercial relationship with UAV Tactical Systems Ltd and no estimate has therefore been made of the number of persons employed by the company.
