SDLP Finance Spokesperson Dominic Bradley MLA has expressed deep concern at the ongoing problems being experienced by customers of the Ulster Bank.
The Newry and Armagh Assembly member said, “This weeks technical problems being experienced by Ulster Bank and its parent company is having a devastating impact on personal and business customers alike. Many people have been left without access to their money and are concerned that their direct debits for things such as mortgages are not being met.”
He continued, “This has been a very worrying time for customers of the banks, and I welcome some of the steps being taken by the bank to extend its opening hours over the weekend in an attempt to resolve the outstanding issues.
“However, I and indeed customers of the  Ulster Bank want assurances that customers will not be penalised for the banks errors, there should be an immediate statement for the bank to assure customers they will not be levied with bills for late payments because of the banks mistakes.”
He added. “I will be seeking these assurances and assurances this type of error will not happen again.”
