David Cameron calls for smaller bank bonuses this year

Prime Minister David Cameron has called on banks to pay smaller bonuses this year.

Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr show he said banks should be more socially responsible.

His comments came as reports were published suggesting the chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland, Stephen Hester, is to be paid a substantial bonus this year. The bank is now mostly owned by the government.

Mr Cameron said no decision had been made yet.
