Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, is fighting for the right of his constituents to receive paper bills and statements from service providers without charge.
“Banks and other service providers are increasingly restricting access to paper bills and statements with little or no consultation and customers are often charged a fee for the “privilege” of a paper statement.
“It is important that local people are able to choose how they receive important financial information from service providers. The statistics show that so many people – including 64,000 in Cheshire - cannot use the internet to manage their financial affairs, either because they don’t want to, don’t have the online skills, cannot afford computers or broadband, or find it difficult due to health conditions. These consumers should not then be penalised by having to pay to keep their paper bills and statements and that is why I am backing the ‘Keep Me Posted’ campaign in its fight for the right of choice.
