Cameron Says Return on RBS More Important Than Sale Timing

Prime Minister David Cameron said U.K. voters are more interested in getting their money back from Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc than in its quick return to the private sector.

“It will take time, because this is a bank that is still healing,” Cameron said in an interview in his London office late yesterday. “As for when we get it back into the private sector, I just have two very simple concerns -- one is we must make sure this bank contributes to the recovery of the U.K. economy. Secondly, people put their money in. I want them to get their money out.”
