Andrea Leadsom – 2014 Comments on Credit Unions

The comments made by Andrea Leadsom, the Economic Secretary to the Treasury, on 12 August 2014.

Credit unions play a vital role in their communities, providing access to affordable credit for those who need it most. This government is determined to help credit unions provide these services to even more people. That is why I am today urging private sector employers and wider society to consider what more they can do to promote the use of credit unions among their employees and communities.
