MPs’ House of Commons Drop-in

Please feel free to copy and paste the invitation wording below to your MP. You can add in your views on keeping cash to personalise your email, which will lend it more

Dear [Insert your MP’s name here],

I am a constituent of yours, [insert name] of [your address]. I am aware that Duncan Baker MP has requested the pleasure of your company, on behalf of the Payment Choice Alliance, to a drop-in session to discuss current access to cash provision, and to call for a Payment Choice Act that would protect the use of cash in the purchasing of everyday goods and services.

The event will be held on Monday 1st July 2024 between 1pm – 5pm in the Terrace Dining Room B, House of Commons. Address: UK Parliament, Westminster, London, SW1A 0AA.

The need to safeguard cash is more important than ever with polling by YouGov commissioned on behalf of the Payment Choice Alliance revealing:

  1. 71% of the public support a Payment Choice Act
  2. Over half (53%) use cash at least once a fortnight with the majority of these even more frequently
  3. Only 3% would strongly support a move to a cashless society

With the average British adult withdrawing more than £1,500 from ATMs last year, the Payment Choice Alliance is focused on ensuring the UK does not sleepwalk into a further deterioration in the public’s ability to withdraw, deposit and pay using their cash.

The event will give you the opportunity to learn more about the important and enduring role that cash plays in your constituents’ lives and how you can support the campaign. I am one such constituent, and urge you to please attend.

If you have not already, please RSVP by Monday 17th June to Annabelle Black at:

Entrance via Cromwell Green. Please allow at least 30 minutes for search and screening.

Smoking/e-cigarettes are not permitted nor are there parking facilities available.

External guests are advised to bring personal photo ID and will not be admitted onto the Parliamentary estate without an invitation.

Kind regards,

[Your name]
