Peter Aldous raises the problems facing traders and residents of Bungay which has had no bank branch or free-to-use ATM since May and calls for legislation to reverse this regressive trend.
I acknowledge the difficult situation that my hon. Friend has in Bungay. The Government-established Payment Systems Regulator is closely monitoring developments in ATM provision and, as I said, there are mechanisms in place to intervene. I am very happy to meet him to discuss the application of those to the situation in Bungay.
