Concerned and sadenned to hear today that RBS will be closing their Leigh branch in January.
Bank branches are an important service to our community and I realise the impact this will have on residents who may not use online banking, prefer to walk into their local branch or rely on the ATM service. I therefore fully support Labour's proposal for stricter rules governing bank branch closures to ensure that our community has a voice on such plans.
I will also be meeting with RBS in October to discuss this planned closure. If you will be impacted by the closure then please get in touch and I will make sure that your views are expressed to the bank.
