Jardine welcomes assurances from RBS

Edinburgh West MP Christine Jardine has welcomed assurances from RBS that no jobs will be lost in the constituency and that customers will not be affected.

Ms Jardine had raised the issue in the House of Commons last week following the announcement that the bank is to move 443 jobs offshore.

Following a meeting with RBS this morning Ms Jardine said:

'While It's reassuring that none of the jobs being lost are in Edinburgh West, it is still disappointing that there may be job losses elsewhere in the city.

"RBS is a major employer and their future stability is crucial not just to the economic well-being of Edinburgh West, but also to the wider economy.

“I have also been assured that there will be no loss of service to customers as the affected posts are in portfolio management, and although based abroad the staff will continue to work U.K. Hours.”
