Description
The Abbey National flotation on the stock market will get under way in just over a week as expected, despite fears of a last-minute hitch. The Building Societies Commission (BSC) today gave the Abbey the green light to go to the stock market after studying the way in which the society presented its case for becoming a Plc to members. The BSC has called for minor changes to safeguard a quarter of a million children who save with the Abbey, but apart from that it is full steam ahead. Abbey’s Chairman, Sir Campbell Adamson, has been telling Danny Bowers that it was a nail-biting time, waiting for the all-clear.
