Opinion: From our Readers - Banking sector has a very long way to go

With respect to Broadgate's Mark Knight (News, 3 April), the banking sector is going to have to change its behaviour well beyond 'clearing cheques in real time and halting bank charges for going 50 pence overdrawn'.

The sector's first action must be to sever the reckless gambling it has enjoyed with other people's hard-earned cash from the accepted retail bank function of old.

Then, and only then, might it start to claw back some semblance of public trust. It will be a rewarding challenge for the comms fraternity to evidence that change of practice effectively.
