STEPHEN Lloyd has thrown his weight behind a campaign to save cheques from the chop.

The Eastbourne MP joined a delegation of MPs to deliver a petition from the Save the Cheque campaign to the Prime Minister. “For many older or vulnerable people, particularly pensioners or those who are housebound, cheques are a necessary alternative to keeping wads of cash under their pillow and leaving themselves at a greater risk of theft and burglary,” he said. “Our petition has received support from thousands of people from all across the country, of different ages and walks of life.”
