I have certainly had more people coming to my surgeries to talk about how they are being treated by the banks. I am also aware from money advice centres, Citizens Advice and other advice centres in my area that since the banking crisis the number of people complaining about how the banks have dealt with them has risen considerably. One is never entirely sure whether that is because the issues have been given more publicity-what we hear in our surgeries is not necessarily an objective assessment-but it is noticeable that the numbers have risen substantially, and I understand that that is a common experience.
