Alistair Darling, the chancellor, will today unveil details of the arm’s-length agency that will manage the £37 billion in stakes the government agreed with banks to help them in the credit crisis.

The Treasury said the agency’s staff would be tasked with monitoring the lending activities of the banks to ensure that they fulfill the pledge to ensure funding of small businesses.
