Rbs Group’s Treatment Of Basic Bank Account Holders

Posted on: 11th October 2011

Andrew George has signed EDM2201. Motion reads: “That this House is deeply disturbed by RBS Group’s plans to deny its estimated one million bank account holders access to 80 per cent. of cash machines by restricting them to using NatWest, RBS, Ulster Bank and Tesco branded cash machines or making Post Office withdrawals; notes that this will cause problems for manypeople, particularly in emergency situations and to those less able to travel easily; deems that the taxpayer-funded RBS Group is effectively and unacceptably penalising its poorer customers and treating them as second-class citizens; and calls on RBS Group to reverse its decision.”
