Which? comments on Link’s plans to help protect ATMs in remote areas

Jenni Allen, Managing Director, Which? Money, said:
“Boosting premiums for machines in remote areas has so far not been enough to stop cashpoints closing around the country, including in more remote areas where they are desperately needed – so we hope this latest move from Link is enough to arrest this alarming trend.

“What is urgently needed is for a regulator to be given a duty to protect access to cash, so that the millions of people who rely on it in their lives are protected from rapid changes through ATM and bank branch closures.”
