Royal Bank of Scotland closure

Volume 636: debated on Tuesday 20 February 2018

I rise to present a petition relating to the damaging and misguided proposals to close the RBS branch in Linlithgow.

The petition states:

The petition of residents of Linlithgow East Falkirk,

Declares that proposed closure of Linlithgow branch of the publicly-owned Royal Bank of Scotland will have a detrimental effect on local community and the local economy.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges Her Majesty’s Treasury, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Royal Bank of Scotland to take into account the concerns of petitioners and take whatever steps they can to halt the planned closure of this branch.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
