Reader's letter: Cash choice
With regard to M. Nottingham’s letter about being refused to be allowed to pay his council tax in cash, I have always paid in cash in shops if they give a choice of card or cash, but a few only let you pay by card — until the card machine stops working.
They put their eggs in one basket and when it goes wrong then they want your cash.
You should have the choice not be dictated to.
It only needs something to go wrong and have no money on you and then you cannot buy your items. — D. HINCHLEY, Balderton.
