> SNP MSP for South Scotland Emma Harper today (Thursday) said that the announcement of the closure of Clydesdale Bank branches in Castle Douglas and Stranraer was bad news for Galloway and urged the bank to reconsider.

> Emma said:
>
> “The announcement that Clydesdale Bank is to close its branches in Stranraer and Castle Douglas is bad news for Galloway and represents a further unwelcome removal of high street banking from major towns in the region.
>
> “If they go head, these closures will leave the whole of the Stewartry without a branch of the Clydesdale Bank, since the branch in Dalbeattie closed some years ago, and the second largest town in the region, Stranraer, without a Clydesdale branch either.
>
> “Whilst I recognise that an increasing number of people use online and mobile banking, it is still the case that there are transactions that have to be done over the counter. I will be writing to the Chief Executive of the Clydesdale & Yorkshire Banking Group to urge him to reconsider these proposals.”
