Newly appointed Opposition Spokesman on National Security, Fitz Jackson, is assuring that he remains committed to lobbying for amendments to the Banking Services Act.
Mr. Jackson has been leading the charge against what he calls ‘exorbitant’ bank charges depositors must pay.
The Banking Services Amendment Act seeks to enforce a mandatory ‘minimum service package’ for customers of financial institutions.
The bill was withdrawn in May. He says he expects the redrafted bill to be completed and re-tabled in the parliament in ‘short order.’
Jackson was speaking with the media yesterday at the PNP’s headquarters on Old Hope Road in St. Andrew following the announcement of the Opposition’s shadow cabinet.
