Cash Dispensing: Yeovil

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 9 October 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce new, free ATMs in Yeovil constituency as part of the Working Group initiative to improve access in low income communities; and if he will make a statement. (154624)

As announced by my predecessor on 19 June, excellent progress has been made towards the goal of providing over 600 new free ATMs across the 1,707 low income target areas identified by the ATM working group as lacking convenient access to free cash withdrawals. Yeovil constituency is not one of the target areas identified by the working group because no areas in Yeovil constituency were found to fall within the most deprived quartile of areas in the UK according to the Index of Multiple Deprivation. However, Yeovil constituency currently has 61 free ATMs, according to LINK data.
