I rise to present a petition collected from the people of the town of Nairn, concerned at the closure of their Royal Bank of Scotland branch.
The petition states:
The petition of residents of Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey,
Declares that proposed closure of the 4 branches of the publicly-owned Royal Bank of Scotland in the areas of Grantown, Nairn, Aviemore and Inverness will have a detrimental effect on local communities 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 these branches.
And the petitioners remain, etc.
