MSP Gil Paterson has penned a letter to Lloyds Banking Group about the planned closure of the Dalmuir Bank of Scotland branch.
The Clydebank MSP is asking the bank to reverse the decision, saying the local branch is a “vital resource” to local people and businesses.
Following the latter on November 30, Mr Paterson said: “I have asked Lloyds Banking Group to reconsider the planned closure of the Bank of Scotland in Dalmuir.
“This bank is an important local amenity for my constituents, many of whom still rely on the face-to-face service.
“This is especially the case for elderly, disabled or generally vulnerable constituents who do not access online banking.
“The closest bank would be more than two miles away, so the closure of this branch would have a major impact.
“The nature of banking is indeed changing but as we progress we cannot leave anyone behind, there is still a huge role face-to-face banking plays for many of my constituents.
“I hope Lloyds Banking Group can reconsider closing its Dalmuir branch."
