Britain's Brown calls for bigger IMF bailout fund

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Tuesday that he wants China and oil-rich Gulf states to offer money for an enhanced IMF bailout fund aimed at helping countries rocked by the global economic downturn.
Brown told reporters that countries with the largest surpluses could "do most to help."
"We must act now, we must set up the fund as quickly as possible," Brown said in London, ahead of talks on the crisis in Paris with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
