Ross McEwan called to give evidence on RBS closures

07 February 2018

After the announcement of RBS branch closures, the Scottish Affairs Committee calls on Ross McEwan, Chief Executive Officer of Royal Bank of Scotland Group, to clarify the contents of their announcements.

"We welcome today’s announcement from RBS as the first steps to addressing the concerns raised by the committee. However, given that there is a still an active closure programme being pursued by RBS, we remain to be convinced that the threat of serious consequences for remote or deprived communities has been removed. We hope that RBS will continue to consider the action they have taken and listen to local communities about the impact it will have on them. 
 
We will now be calling Ross McEwan to give evidence to clarify the contents of their announcements and press him on the future of the other branches in the RBS network. The Committee will also call the Treasury Minister responsible for representing the public interest in RBS, given that the Government are the majority shareholders"
