We have not had any discussions with Natwest regarding their review of Ulster Bank. The transfer reflects internal restructuring within Natwest Group and is a matter for them and the relevant financial regulators.

I welcome the fact that Ulster Bank have said that customers will see no changes to their day-to-day banking when the transfer is completed, and in particular their commitment that local jobs will not be impacted as a result.
