LONDON (Reuters) - Britain has cut its stake in Lloyds Banking Group
British finance minister Philip Hammond is under pressure to recoup cash from the government's stake in Lloyds and fellow bailed-out bank Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS.L) to relieve a likely shortfall in the nation's finances.
The UK has recouped over 17 billion pounds of taxpayer cash after it began selling off its stake in 2013.
