Which? response to decline in cash machine use amid coronavirus concerns

Gareth Shaw, Head of Money at Which?, said:

“While many consumers are understandably turning to alternative payment methods during the pandemic, cash remains a fundamental way for millions of people to pay for essential products and services.

“The government committed to legislation to ensure consumers have access to cash for as long as they need it. However, that access is disappearing rapidly as the cash system teeters on the brink of collapse, so urgent action must be taken to secure it before it’s too late.”
