Tunstall Co-op Bank Closure Goes to Parliament

Ruth Smeeth M.P. for Stoke on Trent North & Kidsgrove took the fight to Parliament, where she called on the Government to do more to stop bank closures, including the Co-op Bank in Tunstall.

Ruth debated in the House of Commons on Thursday telling members that all the towns in her constituency are facing branch closures, and is requesting the Government to support measures to protect access to banking services in local communities.

Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association have welcomed the M.P.s involvement in her attempt to protect banking services in Tunstall, but also in Kidsgrove and Burslem.

S.A.G.E. Residents Association has now attracted over 1,250 petition signatures in it’s attempt to save the Tunstall Co-op Bank from closure, and will soon be presenting it to senior members of the Co-operative Bank.
