Castlebay branch to remain open until at least the end of 2018
Isles MP, Angus MacNeil MP has received confirmation from the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) that the Castlebay branch is to remain open until at least the end of 2018.
Mr MacNeil has remained vocal in his criticism of RBS following their decision to close the branch in Castlebay and reduce to opening hours of the Lochboisdale branch.
Last week, Mr MacNeil extended an invitation to John Glen MP, Economic Secretary to HM Treasury to visit the Isle of Barra and the Isle of South Uist to gain a better understanding about the implications of the Royal Bank of Scotland’s (RBS) decision to close the branch in Castlebay and reduce the hours of the branch in Lochboisdale.
Commenting on today’s announcement from RBS, Angus MacNeil MP said:
“This is a step in the right direction but we still have a long way to go.
“What we need here is complete removal of any threat of the Castlebay branch closing or reduction in the hours of the Lochboisdale branch.”
