MP presses for re-think over Baldock bank closure

Following representations from constituents in Baldock and recent coverage in the Comet newspaper, North East Hertfordshire MP Sir Oliver Heald is to hold a meeting at Westminster with senior executives from Barclays Bank. 

Commenting Sir Oliver said: “It is wrong for a town the size of Baldock to be left without a bank. I am also pointing out that there are plans for very substantial development in the Baldock area, which would increase the footfall and economics of a branch. It seems short-sighted to deprive the town of this facility at this time.”
