SGF Responds to UK Government Post Office Banking Consultation

The Scottish Grocers’ Federation (SGF) has responded to the UK Government’s consultation on Post Office Banking. The consultation seeks views on whether the Post Office should expand the range of banking services it offers.

John Drummond, Chief Executive of SGF said:

“For many SGF members the Post Office provides an important part of their business and is also important for the wellbeing of communities across Scotland.

“Services which secure the long term viability of Post Offices must be embraced. Following the banking crisis there is an appetite amongst the public for the Post Office to provide additional banking services. It is important this potential is developed into a range of competitive yet viable products.”
