HC Deb 15 June 2000 vol 351 c689W
Ms Glenda Jackson

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what consultations he has had on the expansion of community banking; and with whom. [124588]

Miss Melanie Johnson

On 16 November 1999 the Government published a report by Police Action Team 14 on ways to improve individual access to financial services, and by the Credit Unions Taskforce on ways in which banks and building societies could help credit unions to grow. Last month I met members of the All Party Group on Community Banking Services and will soon be meeting with the Association of British Credit Unions.
