He has laid out a nine-point plan to drive a social compact between the banks, shareholders, the government and parliament. Politically his timing couldnt have been better, garnering strong support from voters. His plan includes increasing the powers of the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) to investigate price signalling or price collusion among banks, and he will intro duce a private members Bill on this when parliament next sits. Apparently Treasurer Wayne Swans been working on a package for some time to temper the arrogance of the banks, and will announce a raft of measures next month. It will include increasing the powers of the ACCC to investigate price signalling or price collusion among banks. The Senate, too, will conduct an inquiry into the banking system, with the aim of reporting back to parliament in March. What will come of all this remains to be seen. Will it stop privately-owned banks making their own decisions for their shareholders and customers ... dont bank on it. Dont sit in Customers should make it known they are unhappy with their banks, consumer group Choice says SYDNEY: The Federal Government has been urged to implement simple measures immediately to improve banking services and products for ordinary Australians. Consumer group Choice has launched a campaign to improve bank practices, as new figures showed even though most consumers are dissatisfied with their bank, almost 80 per cent had not considered switching. The Better Banking campaign comes amid rising anger about the interest rate policies of the big four banks, which have recently reported massive annual profits. Choice Better Banking campaign director Richard Lloyd says the banks have underestimated the level of community anger toward the sector. The banks have really underestimated consumer anger about fees, but also about shoddy service, he said. Theres actually a crisis of consumer confidence in banking right now. What were saying to the government and to the banks is that we think nothing should be off the table in terms of solutions to the banking problem in Australia. Mr Lloyd said the government needed to make it easier for people to switch banks, stamp out unfair daily banking fees and drive competition. A Newspoll survey conducted for Choice found only 7.6 per cent of Aussies had switched their bank accounts in the past two years.
