S4M-05922: Bank Branch Closures

12 Mar 2013

S4M-05922 John Mason (Glasgow Shettleston) (Scottish National Party): That the Parliament expresses deep disappointment in the Royal Bank of Scotland’s (RBS) latest decision to close a number of branches across Scotland, including Gourock and one of its two remaining branches in Glasgow Shettleston; considers that these proposals go against the wishes of many RBS customers, particularly those in poorer areas who may not have easy access to internet and mobile banking, and finds a sense of irony in RBS’ decision to turn its back on customers who it considers bailed it out after it found itself in serious financial difficulties.
