BBC NEWS | Programmes | Moneybox | Banking code changes

I almost got excited for a minute. "Enforced 3 day cheque clearances". Nope. They're only forcing banks to tell us they're going to take two weeks to clear our cheque.

Another interesting one "Basic Bank Accounts available to almost anyone". I wonder if this has any link to the Government push for benefits to be paid through Direct Payment? The Post Offices are closing down, and the DHSS has moved the majority of their business to BACS.
