Ruth statement on Santander Closure

After the announcement that the Santander Branch on Chiswick High Road would be closing Ruth Cadbury MP has issued the following statement,

‘‘I’m extremely concerned to hear that the Santander Branch on Chiswick High Road is set to close. I hope to meet with Santander to discuss this further and to raise the serious impact that this will have on many residents and businesses locally.

This news comes very soon after the recent announcement that the Barclays Branch in Brentford would also be closing, and I can see from reports in the media that Santander are closing over 100 branches across the country.

I know that this news will be very worrying and appears to be yet another sign of the huge challenges facing our high streets. I will be raising this wider issue with the Government and will make sure that the concerns of local residents are heard clearly throughout this process.’’
