Following confirmation in today’s Queen’s Speech that the Government will bring forward legislation to protect access to cash:
John Howells, CEO, LINK: “We strongly welcome today’s news and are pleased that the Government recognises that protecting access to cash is vital. We know that consumers are becoming increasingly digital and using alternatives to cash, but there are still ten million people who rely on cash.
“A great deal of progress has been achieved by the banking industry over the past couple of years, in which LINK has played a critical role. This is good news for any community in the future as we continue to protect access to cash services and we look forward to seeing the details of the Bill in due course.”
