star this property answer text <p>Last year, the Government initiated a discussion on payment methods through a Call for Evidence on Cash and Digital Payments in the New Economy. This sought to gather evidence from industry and the public alike on how changing preferences for cash and digital payments impact on different sectors, regions and demographics.</p><p> </p><p>A formal Summary of Responses to this Call for Evidence was published in May 2019. This response set out the Government’s commitment to supporting digital payments, whilst safeguarding access to cash for those who need it. It also highlighted that the Treasury would set up and chair a Joint Authorities Cash Strategy Group, made up of regulators and the Bank of England, to facilitate further co-ordination between the authorities and provide comprehensive oversight of the overall cash infrastructure.</p><p> </p><p>The Government-established Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) is closely monitoring developments in ATM provision, including those that are free-to-use. The PSR regulates LINK, the scheme which runs the UK’s ATM network, and has used its powers to hold LINK to account over LINK’s commitments to preserve the broad geographic spread of free-to-use ATMs.</p><p> </p><p>LINK has put in place specific arrangements to protect free-to-use ATMs more than 1 kilometre away from the next nearest free-to-use ATM. LINK has also enhanced its Financial Inclusion Programme by tripling the funding available for free-to-use ATMs in the most deprived areas of the UK.</p>

star this property answer text <p>This Government takes the failure of London Capital &amp; Finance (LCF) and its impact on consumers very seriously. HM Treasury officials have been in communication with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regarding LCF since January 2019. I wrote to the FCA on its role in regulating LCF via the following letter of 1 April 2019:</p><p><a href="https://www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-committees/treasury/Correspondence/2017-19/EST-to-Charles-Randell-FCA-010419.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-committees/treasury/Correspondence/2017-19/EST-to-Charles-Randell-FCA-010419.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>In this letter, I announced that I would order an investigation into the failure of LCF, using Treasury powers under section 77 of the Financial Services Act 2012. I want to make sure we have the strongest and safest financial system possible. By ordering this investigation, we will better understand the circumstances around the collapse of LCF and make sure we are properly protecting those who invest their money in the future.</p><p> </p><p>The role of the Treasury in this investigation is set out in sections 77 to 82 of the Financial Services Act 2012. It is essential that the terms of the investigation are set in a way that ensures these objectives are met and take into account any issues arising from current regulatory and enforcement investigations. HM Treasury officials are working to develop these with the relevant bodies as a matter of priority. Further details on this investigation, including its duration and the reporting arrangements, will be published shortly.</p>
