Julian Smith MP writes to Barclays CEO about bank closures

Julian Smith has written to the Chief Executive of Barclays about the decision to close Barclays’ Grassington and Pateley Bridge branches.

Julian Smith MP said: ‘I am concerned about the number of recent bank branch closures across the constituency and will be writing to Barclays about the impact of the loss of such a vital service. Access to banking services is particularly important in rural areas and I want to make sure that our high streets and local businesses thrive. I hope the decision can be reversed.’
