One would have thought that nowadays it would be a simple enough operation. Indeed HMG has an interest in this – they must have the tech skills required.

    Service at Metro bank is also desperately poor. I visited a branch recently as they had failed to replace my ATM card & had a significant wait. Of 8 staff in the front of the branch, only 2 were assisting customers. If the USP is supposed to be branch opening hours, it is best not to ruin it with poor service.
    Meanwhile, the importance of branches declines, as whether we like it or not (I do not), contactless payment is taking over from cash & all non-cash items can be done on line.
