Day of action planned against Royal Bank of Scotland closures

THE SNP plans a national “day of action” as part of a campaign to prevent RBS branch closures.

The bank announced plans to close 62 branches across Scotland, but has since granted a reprieve for 10 premises.

Those branches – most of which are in communities where there is no other branch for several miles – will stay open until the end of 2018, with an independent review carried out into whether they remain open long-term.

The SNP said the move did not go far enough, and has vowed to continue the campaign to keep the remaining banks that are under threat open.

SNP politicians and community campaigners will gather in towns across the country on March 10 to collect signatures for a petition.

The party’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford said: “After huge pressure from the SNP and community campaigners, RBS announced a reprieve for 10 local branches – but our fight to save the remaining banks continues. The SNP national day of action is aimed at keeping the pressure up.”
