Pat McFadden on protecting the cash system

Pat McFadden MP, Labour’s Shadow Economic Secretary to the Treasury, responding to a Which? report and call on the Government to protect the cash system that millions still rely on, said:

“This research shows the urgent need to protect free access to cash. The impact of lockdown has accelerated the decline in the use of cash overall but it still remains a crucial means of paying for many people.

“Without clear legislation, we risk the creation of cash deserts. We cannot allow financial exclusion of those who rely on cash purchases and face-to-face banking.”
