Which? responds to the Government’s pledge to protect access to cash

David Chaplin, Head of Campaigns, Which?, said:
“Millions of people across the UK who rely on cash in their daily lives are currently at risk of being stripped of their ability to pay for essential goods and services – so the government’s unprecedented commitment to protecting cash should finally offer them some reassurance.

“This new body must act urgently to address rapid changes to the cash landscape – as its success will be judged by how it ensures people can continue to access their preferred payment method in the face of bank branch and cashpoint closures, intermittent broadband access and regular IT glitches affecting digital payment methods.”
