The end of Cheques? - Treasury Contents

Written evidence submitted by Brenda Levenson

  I read recently that the committee is to investigate the banks wishes to stop issuing cheques and that alternatives are being considered.

  As a constant user of cheques when I cannot use direct debit or a credit card (eg sending gifts to younger members of the family as the postal system seems unable to deliver birthday cards etc which might contain gift cards). I also use cheques to pay for items bought from firms to whom I do not wish to give my credit or banking card details.

  I wonder what alternatives are possible. I am sure I am not the only person who does not wish to see the demise of the cheque system.
