“Theresa has met with me on 13 occasions and we have 5 hours of discusions concerning the subject of Banking conduct in her constituency of Maidenhead and in particular the way LloydsTSB sold financial products to its poorer customers -is of great concern to the Home Secretary.”

Theresa May wrote to Mr Taplin on Decemeber 17th 2014 ;-

“I have decided to raise the matter with Tracy McDermott-Executive FCA Board Member ;and Andrea Leadsom ,the Economic Secretary to the Treasury

“In my letter to the Economic Secretary ,I referred to my conversation with the Chancellor of the Exchequer ,who suggested I raise the case with her.I asked if she could look into the matter and comment”

On request from a FCA Director Mr Taplin is also compiling a Formal Complaint – which  alleges Lloyds Bank  Directors and the HR Staff used  intimidation, bullying,and issued threats to Mr Taplin ;and whom purposely obstructed Mr Taplin as a public interest whistle blower.

Ian Taplin, former British Army Infantry Officer and Recipient of the Army Bursary Scholarship also added;-

“Working for Lloyds TSB was a highly unpleasant experience .I witnessed systemmatic mis-selling on a huge scale and the Bank managed its staff through threats and fear.

“We believe as many as 1 million LloydsTSB customers were mis-sold certain products and the probable  compensation bill could be between £5bn -£10bn”

“In Maidenhead, we estimate that at least 6,000 local people could be affected and Theresa May is concerned about the manner in which LloydsTSB conducted itself in her own Constituency and this conduct being unresolved in the lead up to the Generel  Election campaign 2015.
