Nationwide Banking Bill
  • Access to cash on our high streets
  • Face to face high street banking
  • £10bn extra lending capacity
  • Up to 20,000 more mortgages
  • Business banking services so that small businesses can continue to take cash
  • Banking hubs for under-served communities

These are just some of the reasons why I am backing the Nationwide Banking Bill in Parliament – having helped secure a community banking hub for Watton, and having long campaigned on the importance of Access to Cash and local banking (for example, through my work with Nationwide in Dereham).

I was delighted to be able to use my new freedom as a backbench MP to speak up for my Mid Norfolk communities including Attleborough, Wymondham, Watton, Dereham and Hingham, as well as the 114 villages I represent.
