Jonathan Reynolds responds to Santander bank branch closures

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow City Minister, responding to the latest round of branch closures announced by Santander, said:

“The closure of these bank branches by Santander is disappointing news, coming on the heels of hundreds of disappearing branches in 2018 across the entire UK network. Shutting bank branches not only means jobs will be lost but also damages local communities and high streets.

“Under a Labour government, there would be mandatory consultation around the closure of bank branches. We have a duty to ensure there is basic banking infrastructure for all who need it.”
