John Glen – 2022 Comments on Access to Cash

The comments made by John Glen, the Economic Secretary to the Treasury, on 19 May 2022.

Millions of people across the UK still rely on cash, particularly those in vulnerable groups, and today we are delivering on our promise to ensure that access to cash is protected in communities across the country.

I want to make sure that people are still able to use cash as part of their daily lives, and it’s crucial to ensure that no person nor community across the UK is left behind as we embrace a more digital world.
