The recently announced closure of 62 RBS branches across Scotland could severely impact on some or all of the rural communities those branches serve.

Scottish Rural Action will be presenting evidence on the impact of the closures to the Scottish Affairs Committee at Westminster on the 17th January. To do that effectively, we need to know what our members and other people in rural communities think about the closures.

To find out more about the proposed closures, see:

* 1. Do you currently use one of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) branches which are scheduled to close for your banking?

* 2. If yes, which one?

* 3. Did the RBS consult with you or your community as far as you know before making this decision?

* 4. Do you think the bank closures should go ahead?

* 5. How will it affect you if the closures go ahead? Please answer the remaining questions for yourself, or the person you care for/family member/business.

* 6. Are there positives about the bank closures?

* 7. Are you able to do banking online?

* 8. Have you used Post Office banking services before?

* 9. Are Post Office banking services something that you could use?

* 10. Are mobile branch bank services something you could use (where a bank van comes to your community)?

* 11. How do you currently use the internet?

* 12. Have you ever been affected by a bank closure in the past? (not the planned bank closures)

* 13. To get feedback on this survey and more information about the RBS closures, sign up to our newsletter by adding your email address here:
