WAKEFIELD MP Mary Creagh has highlighted the issue of charges for people using cash machines.
Ms Creagh (pictured) told the Commons that British people would pay £250m in charges to get at their money this year.
She asked what the Government was doing to prevent banks from selling more of their cash machines and ensuring that there were free cash machines in public places, such as hospitals, railway stations and colleges?
Ivan Lewis, Economic Secretary to the Treasury, told her there had been improvements in the system - but there were also worries that things could get worse.
He added that he was arranging a meeting between the Commons Treasury Select Committee and members of the banking industry and other leading financial groups.
He said this would "ensure we do not go backwards on such an important issue".
