Capping Overdraft Charges For Current Accounts

EDM number 938 in 2016-17, proposed by Margaret Ritchie on 08/02/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Financial institutions and Financial services.

That this House calls on the Government to introduce a cap on the total charges any bank can place on overdrawn personal current accounts; further calls on the Competition and Markets Authority to note the 2016 decision not to introduce a mandatory cap on overdraft charges; notes the high levels of interest that can arise as a result of daily charges accruing over time; and expresses deep concern over the disproportionate impact these charges have on low-paid households and on those relying on insecure sources of employment.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
