Another cash machine victory against the rip-off merchants


I was horrified when I found out, just over a year ago, that half the cash machines in the poorest parts of Birkenhead charged people to draw out their money. Local residents were losing up to £10 a month on the back of these charges.

I immediately called a summit with the cash machine industry. LINK the cash machine operator then took on board my concerns and they’ve responded brilliantly.

They came to Birkenhead to talk with local residents about the impact of these rip-off charges on their lives, and the reasons why they were unable to access machines that were free-to-use.

I’m pleased to report, on the back of their research, another victory against the rip-off merchants.

Local residents in Bidston and St James are among one third of a million people across Britain who are set to benefit from a raft of new free-to-use cash machines, following my campaign.

They’ll now face a much smaller risk of being charged for this basic service, and will get to keep more of their own money rather than have it pinched from them in charges.

This adds to the three new machines I’ve secured from the two Aldi supermarkets and the Co-op in Noctorum.

I’m now working to try and get more of our petrol stations, smaller stores and corner shops to follow suit.

And I would like to hear from you, as always, on if you have been ripped off by one of these machines in Birkenhead.
