Santander Bath Road branch

Volume 699: debated on Wednesday 14 July 2021

I rise to present a petition on behalf of residents of Feltham and Heston to call on Santander to stop the closure of the bank branch on Bath Road in Hounslow West.

The petitioners declare that it is crucial to save this vital, valued branch, which has two cashpoints, helps to boost our local economy and provides vital banking services for thousands of local residents, many of whom are older people without access to online banking. Residents use the branch frequently and have valued the service from Santander for many years.

This petition, along with the corresponding online petition, has collected more than 400 signatures and been supported by local councillors, particularly Councillor Bandna Chopra, Councillor Jagdish Sharma and Councillor Sumra, and colleagues and residents from across Hounslow West, Heston and Cranford.

The petition states:

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to ask that Santander does not close the Bath Road branch.

And the petitioners remain, etc.

Following is the full text of the petition:

[The petition of residents of Feltham and Heston,

Declares that the Santander branch on Hounslow Bath Road should not be closed; further that access to in-person banking services is crucial to many residents in the local area; and further that residents feel that they will not have access to a comparable banking service over the phone or online and will struggle financially as a result.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to ask that Santander does not close the Bath Road branch.

And the petitioners remain, etc.]
