Which? comments as MPs urge Barclays to reverse its decision to axe Post Office cash withdrawals

Gareth Shaw, Head of Money, Which?, said:
“Barclays has shown real disregard to the needs of its customers through its reckless move to cease cash withdrawals from the Post Office.

“MPs are right to challenge this ill-conceived decision that risks leaving many of their constituents facing an uphill struggle just to access the cash they need.

“It’s clear the broken cash landscape is being further damaged by industry’s approach, which is why we’re calling on the government to urgently intervene with legislation that protects cash for as long as it is needed.”
