(adapted from an email from the Improvement Service)
The Scottish Parliament’s Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee wishes to share information about its inquiry into the impact of bank closures.
The main inspiration behind the Committee’s inquiry is that the number of bank branches across Scotland reduced by a third between 2010 and 2017.
The Committee wants to hear from as many people as possible (individuals, business owners, community council members). The Committee is keen to find out how branch closures have impacted communities at as local a level as possible.

The Call for views. For the call for views, there isn’t a requirement to answer every question, only the ones that are relevant to the community: http://parliament.scot/parliamentarybusiness/CurrentCommittees/107960.aspx
The Committee is also running a survey that is targeted more to individuals and businesses. The intention of the survey is to capture as many views as possible and the call for views is there to allow a fuller response. http://bit.ly/bankclosures
