RBS to Close The Only Bank on Barra

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Friday December 1 2017

Isles MP calls RBS to a meeting in Barra amid reports of closure of Castlebay branch.

Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MP Angus Brendan MacNeil is writing to RBS to come to the Isle of Barra for a meeting to discuss the urgent situation following their suggestion to close the only bank on the Island which would leave islanders to take ferry journeys to get to a bank.

Commenting Angus MacNeil MP said;

“I am calling on RBS to come to Barra for a public meeting, they simply cannot close this branch.

“If RBS continue these proposed savage cuts across the country they should drop Scotland from their name as they would be trading under a very false impression.”
