Basic bank accounts in Scotland

This briefing was issued to Scottish MPs on the 18th of January 2011 to inform the debate in Westminster Hall on basic bank accounts in Scotland.

In November 2010 Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) published Banking on the Basics1, a report on the accessibility of basic bank accounts in Scotland. CAB across Scotland report of clients who have been unable to access a basic bank account because of an undischarged bankruptcy, a poor credit history, for having no credit history, because of set ID requirements and for having debt with a bank.
