Where would this compensation money come from?
Ultimately, the UK's regulated banks cover the cost of the compensation scheme as it is funded by compulsory levies on the financial services industry.
But the banks have raised concerns that if they pay into a pot just in case an institution gets into trouble then this would take money from the system at a time when the credit crunch means money is already tight.
As a result the money would initially come from the public sector to compensate customers of a closed bank, Chancellor Alistair Darling has said.
