Ross has taken a stand against the closures and reduced hours of the local TSB branches in Aberdeen South.
“I am extremely disappointed to hear that TSB has taken the decision to close its Holburn Street branch and cut opening hours at several others in the north-east. Many customers – including small businesses – still rely on that face-to-face service that a bricks and mortar branch provides. Moves to reduce opening hours could be the thin end of the wedge and lead to further closures. I am very concerned for people who may have difficulty accessing alternative banking arrangements, particularly those in more rural areas. This announcement is hugely regrettable and I will be raising the matter with UK ministers at the earliest opportunity."
