Osborne in battle to weaken EU bankers' bonus cap plans

Help

Chancellor George Osborne flies to Brussels later determined to water down the European Parliament's proposals to curb bankers' bonuses.

They include limiting bonuses to 100% of a banker's annual salary, or to 200% if shareholders approve.
