Stop the Royal Bank of Scotland (owned by taxpayers) from penalising its poorest account holders unfairly

Additional Information

We call on the government to require the Royal Bank of Scotland (along with its RBS Group co-subsidiary NatWest) to reverse its decision to stop its Basic Bank Account holders (among the poorest people in this country) from being able to use rival banks’ free-to-use cash machines on the grounds that allowing them access is too costly to the bank.

As taxpayers, and therefore owners of RBS, we do not want to be complicit in this big bank’s continuing readiness to penalise poor people (who have suffered disproportionately in the banking failures of the recent past) in seeking to boost its own profits and thence bankers’ bonuses.
