Martin Lewis issues supermarket cash warning – ‘they are not breaking any rules’

He said: “I know many people are saying ‘why don’t we just switch to a cashless society?’ – I don’t want that, because there are many vulnerable people who need cash.”

And it seems the government agrees with Martin, as he explained: “The Government has said that once we leave the EU in January it will change the rules so if you want to get cash out form a supermarket you don’t have to buy anything.

“And with the closures of ATMs and bank branches that will be useful.”

Martin had plenty of other advice during his show, and with winter coming, one area he spoke about in detail was frozen pipes.
