HM Treasury has published a call for evidence that sets out the Government’s legislative aims for “protecting access to cash”. The call for evidence seeks views on:
- How the government can ensure the UK maintains an appropriate network of cash withdrawal and deposit-taking facilities over time through legislation, including the potential role of cashback
- The factors affecting cash acceptance; and
- Whether the government should give a single regulator overall statutory responsibility for maintaining access to cash.
The call for evidence closes at 11:59pm on 25 November 2020. Responses should be submitted to [email protected]
