TSB, Port Glasgow, closure

Many businesses across Scotland have been hit hard by the Covid19 pandemic and the banking sector is not exempt.

We have seen a reduction in face-to-face banking services and access to cash in the local community over recent years and there seems to be no end to this trend. For many of my constituents it is still an essential service – particularly at a time when many are already feeling isolated.

I am urging TSB to rethink this decision to close the Port Glasgow branch as a step towards helping our high streets recover from this pandemic.
