Forum for Stable Currencies began to meet at the House of Lords in
February 1998 under the auspices of Lord Sudeley whose great-grandfather was
made bankrupt by Lloyds. Lord Sudeley has studied bankruptcies and their causes
in depth, as the same practices continue to be in operation today. Since Lord
Sudeley was not re-elected, Lord Ahmed of Rotherham is hosting the meetings. As
a Muslim, he is against the practice of taking interest for lending money.
Mitchell MP has addressed and supported the Forum ever since its inception and
other MPs and Peers have shown their support on various occasions.
