Vulture funds: Parliamentary briefing

Parliamentary briefing which sets out the case for why MPs should support Early Day Motion 666, calling on the UK government to:

  • share its experience of legislating on vulture funds with the Government of the United States of America
  • pass legislation to prevent vulture funds from using UK courts to bypass internationally agreed debt restructuring for Argentina and Greece
  • support the creation of a fair, independent and transparent arbitration mechanism for sovereign debt, so that all creditors share equally when unsustainable debts have to be reduced
