"Having come so close to overhauling an unfair system of charging that penalises vulnerable groups of people, I know that the campaign will not just stop." said Nick Clegg

Commenting on the OFT’s decision to drop its investigation into the fairness of bank overdraft charges, the Liberal Democrat Leader said:

“This is extremely disappointing and a blow for millions of bank customers.

Having come so close to overhauling an unfair system of charging that penalises vulnerable groups of people, I know that the campaign will not just stop.

The Liberal Democrats will continue the fight for fair bank charges in Parliament and push for a change in the law if necessary so that high street banks cannot keep ripping off their customers.”
