Which? comments on latest “access to cash” proposals

Gareth Shaw, Which? Money Expert, said:

“Bank branches and free-to-use ATMs are closing at an alarming rate – threatening to leave consumers and businesses without vital banking services.

“Urgent action is needed to protect access to cash and banking services in areas where people still need them. Steps need to be taken to put local communities at the heart of these decisions and give them the chance to have their say before these services disappear.”
