South Devon MP backs campaign to keep cheques
Despite the fact that nearly four million cheques are written every day, the Payments Council, which represents the major banks, will vote this month on whether to carry out plans to scrap cheques.
Backing a campaign to save the cheque is Teign MP Richard Younger-Ross who has signed an early day motion, urging the banks to reconsider their proposals.
Richard told the Devon Week: “Many people still use this method of payment and plans to get rid of cheques will severely affect small and medium sized businesses, rural communities and the more elderly.”
