PROPOSED BANK OF SCOTLAND CLOSURES SLAMMED IN PARLIAMENT

SNP MSP Sandra White will this afternoon lead a debate condemning the Bank of Scotland’s latest proposed closures.
 
Leading a Members’ Debate on the issue, Ms White increased pressure on Bank of Scotland chiefs to reverse plans that could see seven branches close across Scotland – including Glasgow St George’s Cross in her own constituency.
 

Following the announcement, a group of seven SNP MSPs wrote to the Managing Director of Bank of Scotland, Robin Bulloch, seeking an urgent meeting to discuss the plans.
 
Commenting ahead of the debate, SNP MSP Sandra White said:
 
“Bank branches across Scotland have been closing at an alarming rate.
 
“Since 2015 more than 230 bank branches in Scotland have been shut or marked for closure. Research suggests that local branches are closing faster in Scotland than any other part of the UK.
 
“A continued face-to-face banking service is indispensable for many of our most vulnerable constituents.
 
“Parties from across the chamber have made clear today that it’s time for Bank of Scotland to go back to the drawing board and think again about these proposals.
 
“I will continue to fight tooth and nail alongside my SNP colleagues to keep every one of the branches threatened with closure open.
